Assuming that you had to hide in this place for life and there would still be people looking for you I would live in Denali National Park. It is in Alaska where there is a low population density, there are less than half a million visitors a year, and there are plants and animals to live off of.

I don't know why you would want to live in the Smokies, if the National Park Service was shut down it wouldn't stop people from visiting the national park. It is the most visited national park with nine million people a year and isn't small but isn't one of the largest parks.

Adirondack Park; 6.1 million acres...makes the others look like someone's front yard.
But the point of it was that you had to hide out in a National Park. The Adirondacks also have cities in it and some of it is privately owned.

Praising you Plates for staying on topic. The poll isn't where would you hide out, whether it be countries, state parks, etc. It's which of these National Parks do you hide in if these are your only options.

No park at all. It depends on how much media attention it was given. If it's just local or even state w/o pics, bulletins, America's Most wanted stuff, I would rent a place as close to the cop shop, county jail as possible, live right under there noses. If my face was plastered all over the media, I'd try to blend into the NYC crowd.

Thanks, TheDuneDog. This is an interesting thread and would work best if people stuck to it.

Kind of leaning towards the Smokies because of the fairly moderate year round weather. Proper clothing and gear and a nice dry cave.
Also thinking if you are truly on the run you aren't going to want to draw any attention to yourself by robbing park visitors or having friends/family drop supplies to you, so being able to live off the land would be somewhat important.

Yosemite, because it's not too cold or too hot, and there's a nice freshwater source there. My second choice would definently be the Smokey Mountains.
