    Has it been opened by the same ownership/management, or someone new? If memory serves, the resort closed in the spring, and they said they were basically giving up, presumably for financial reasons....

    The solution: Hike and camp on a lesser known trail that you normally see very few people on. A trail that doesn't feature shelters with virus and mice infestations. Do a relatively short loop or...

    OK, but this definition does not explicitly exclude a tent, hammock, etc. as being a camping "unit." After all, these are two of the abodes that make camping in or at a tent pad, site, etc. possible....

    I'm not sure that's possible. But it could be with some extra work. The old AT used a short road that doesn't seem to exist any longer. But its resurrection, or something similar, might be feasible...

    Other reasons there are fewer shuttlers on the lists:

    1) In some places (towns, counties, national parks, etc.) you have to pay for permits to operate a shuttle service nowadays.
