Anybody planning to camp overnight on the A.T., whether one night or many, should use ATCamp to register your campsites. ATCamp will help you prevent overcrowding at overnight sites during your section hike, improve everyone's hiking experience and protect fragile Trail resources.
- A registration is not a reservation.
- ATC asks section hikers, Spring Break hikers and other groups to find an alternative to visiting the A.T. in Georgia and southern North Carolina during March and April due to large numbers of thru-hikers and limited camping resources.
TO REGISTER: Enter your itinerary in sequential order - A. date & starting point, , or ; B. shelter or campsite(s) , and zero days; C. ending point , , or of your trip.
STEP 1: Select a starting , ,or .Your itinerary must begin (and end) with a , , or icon. The map will limit the displayed icons to these three until you select one and a start date. After that, the map will display the shelters-campsites - you can add to your itinerary, or allow you to add zero days, and will automatically pick the date.
TIP: Use the map key to show or hide icons on the map.
TIP: Depending on how full the site is the date block will be green, yellow - or red when the site is full - you will not be able to register for a "full" site with a quota. If the overnight site does not have a quota, you can still see if the site will be full on the night you first pick. When full, please select another site (or A.T. section) which still has space.
STEP 2: When your itinerary is done Click "Continue With Registration" to fill in your personal info, and when done with that click "Review Registration", then "Submit".
STEP 3: ATCamp will send you an e-mail that provides a pdf confirming your itinerary, useful A.T. hiking and camping tips, and your Order#. Keep this e-mail!
STEP 4: If your plans change and you are no longer able to keep your planned schedule please cancel your hike; you will need your Order# in the e-mail for this.
This registration system is continually being improved. If you have questions or comments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
