They initially said they had no plans to ban free dispersed camping. I correctly did not believe them.

Hey Karl – While camping will still be allowed in the Alabama Hills, it will look a bit different. Initially, there will be 50 free sites where you can dispersed camp. All you need to do is get a free permit, which will likely be posted on a kiosk at the entry points of the Alabama Hills. In addition to these sites, there will also be paid camping at the Tuttle Creek Campground.
