    It is possible to hike MW in ONE day if you are in good shape. If you want to spend 2 days doing it there are options, but camping on the trail is not one of them. Probably your best bet would be to hike the Tuckerman Ravine Trail from Pinkham Notch to Hermit Lakes Shelter where you can get a tent platform or lean to for a fee. There is no legal camping in the Cutler River drainage on the east side of Washington, and there is no camping above tree-line anywhere in the White Mountains except on 2 feet of snow. Another option would be to stay at Lakes of the Clouds AMC Hut, but it is very pricey and you need a reservation.
