Not quite true. While the three gas stops on the Parkway have been closed, there are still places to eat and sleep on the road. Peaks of Otter, Doughton Park and Mt. Pisgah all have accomodations and there are a few other places to eat as well.
But some of the side roads are sheer entertainment in and of themselves.
