If you continue past the campgrouond entrance a few hundred yards to where the pavement ends (FS road is gravel from that point), there is THE backcountry parking lot, which is where you should park whether or not the campground is open. Right across the road from the parking lot is the blue blazed Long Branch Trail that leads two miles up thru nice scenery to the AT @ Glassmine Gap. Nice camping right before you get to the AT on a nice stream. Search WB for "Standing Indian Loop" if you want more details. I'll not repeat the volumn of info that's already been provided.

Backcountry parking is always open. Just bear left at the campground entrance, a couple hundred yards on your left at the kiosk. You'll see it.
