OK, got a question for those of you that camp at state parks frequently. I reserved a couple of nights this weekend at a couple of parks and the only sites left were backpack sites. I noticed that at Gooseberry, there were these 2 wheeled carts for those who camp at the backpack sites there to use to haul their gear in. Do all the state parks have them?

No. Only parks that have "cart-in" sites like the ones in Gooseberry or Tettegouche, etc. Of course, cart-in is different from hiking. My understanding is that a park the George Crosby Manitou has hike-in only campsites with no benefit of carts, whereas Tettegouche's cart-in sites are about being in family friendly areas where there is no direct car access.

Thanks, I better give them a call to check and if not, come up with a plan. I made reservations at Cascade and Scenic.
