    It's only sort of crowded; less so than most national parks.

    You are certainly allowed to set up camp in areas other than the shelters. I personally avoid the shelters.

    Thanks, I did some research on it few years ago and somehow came up with the wrong conclusion, a simple search shows you are correct. I hiked the Tecumseh Trail a few years back and had to stay in a shelter, even though I was the only one there I didn't like it. We did the Knobstone a couple years back and it was a lot of up and down, people said it was good training for the AT but without all the magnificence. I enjoyed it though.
    As far as crowds, I avoided the big name parks in Utah and really enjoyed Grand Staircase Escalante.
    To make even more of a side note, I've never carried while hiking, I hoist that pack, feel how heavy it is and leave the gun out.
