Camping during a Government Shutdown?

Just read that there may be a government shutdown soon.

Just curious. Have any of you been through one of these while camping on federal land? If the federal government shuts down, are you forced to leave your site?

Yes. The gates were locked last time while we were out and all campsites empty.

There are always rumors and posturing though and they are often settled at the last minute.

BTW, the government does not shut down, the taxpayers just suffer.

This is not a political rant, just the facts.

And at $174k plus they are way overpaid for what they do, or I should say don't do.

We werenít there but camped nearby. We went to look at the Cg and it was locked and not a soul there. We walked around the gate and explored all over and never saw anyone.
If you have reservations I would call and find out what they have done in the past.

I have not seen any difference between "In Session" or "Not In Session" for the last 20+ years??????

Itís not up to individual Presidents.
