A metal detector is totally legal in any state or federal park. You just cannot remove artifacts. There is no law that prohibits you from using a detector or electric hairdryer if that is what you want to do. The reason you do not see scrappers in the Death Valley is that it is nearly impossible to find anything worth seeing. Each mine sight as well as back country destination is littered with millions of nails, screws, bolts, and recently, bottle caps. The device would sing like a canary as soon as you left the limits of Lone Pine.
