    Go to the office past the railroad tracks and check in. They will give you a window hanger, and tell you to park up the hill at basecamp. It was free last time I parked there.

    Ditto. Except last May, I went and got my permit from the general store across the road from the outfitters. I don't think the general store is opened for the season yet.

    Call them and ask.

    I have parked there twice (two week long sections) with no trouble.

    I just called the NOC about parking for a section hike March, they said it couldn't hurt to pop your head in to the outfitter, so they know why your car is there, and they may ask you to park further away to leave closer spots for the day guests.

    Now that I have parking sorted, I need help finding a shuttle from the NOC to Deep Gap USFS71, or if that road is closed, to the Standing Indian camp ground/ Kimsey Creek trail head on March 25th.

    Ron Brown is a great resource, he shuttled me on all of my GA trips, but he will go all the way up to Fontana Dam
    His contact info can be found in the link in my signiture
