I freaking hope not. I don't want to sleep next to someone when I am out hanging. Also, where the hell do I put my tarp? Just sink some 6x6 posts into the ground, about 15ft apart and call it a day.

Well, from the pictures, it doesn't look like there are any tree from which to choose to hang your hammock. I for one am glad they are putting these structures up in the park. It keeps me from having to carry a "portable" hammock stand. As far as putting up a tarp, it can probably be accommodated, but it would mean less people to hang in it. If I am renting the entire site, then only my wife and I will be hanging from it unless I invite a guest.

Ha! Trust me Scuba, anyone that isn't previously aware of your snoring won't be there for long! You'd have the whole site to yourself after your first nap. [emoji23]
