Friends is there overnight parking at Clingman's Dome? I have a meeting in Pigeon Forge in August and plan to hike to Fontana from Clingman's when the meeting is over.

Yes, you just need to get a permit at the Ranger's Station for your stay at the shelters on the trail. At that time you register your car so that they know who it belongs to and that it is supposed to be there overnight.

Don't wait to the last minute to make shelter reservations. They get pretty full this time of year. Call to line up your overnight stops, then reference your reservation number when you fill out the permit at the ranger station.
