They don't cull the deer which over run the park and create hazards to driving public. The deer and other wildlife are diseased. Locals report contracting Lyme disease. Stay away.

I am sorry I saw this question a little too late. National Parks allow you to stay only 15 days in a year. So plan accordingly.

There are general water faucets present, so you can fill up your tank(s) of water, but you cannot be connected to the water generally as your camping. I didn't see any dump stations.
