Wilderness Camping Zones Map
« on: November 13, 2018, 02:18:44 PM »
So I went to look at the Wilderness Zone Camping map on nps.gov/Bibe and it is way too small to read anything.  is there a better map somewhere?  I would like to research our options before leaving home. 

Thanks!

Here is a larger one and is about as good as they get.  The boundaries are somewhat vague in some places, so just use your best judgment.  :great:

Here's the one from El Campo back when it was still in use by the NPS.

Which is exactly what the funny hatter will do as s/he harangues you for violating that vague boundary, just before scratching you a ticket. :s_laugh:

Just keep in mind your best judgment never will equal or exceed their best judgment. :sign0096:
