  • These are the best shelters I have encountered on the AT. They are clean, like actually clean. The privy is wonderful, as wonderful as a privy can be. The caretakers are amazing and stop by daily. They have one shelter named "snoring" and one named "non-snoring" next to each other. They have a spring right up the trail, super close. Just have to cross the stream. Be careful the rocks can be slippery!
    They have a group tenting site which is AMAZING and then 2 designated tent sites with tiny smooth rocks to cushion you. They have a covered picnic area, clothes lines, firewood that is stocked regularly, toilet paper (like 6 rolls! all the time!), sanitizer that's always full, and places to hang your food and more I'm probably forgetting.
    Seriously, stay at this shelter. It is close to the road, but the road is not really a road many people travel. The road that it's on is a road that cuts through the mountain and the state park. So you won't really have issues with locals.
    Tumbling Run is the best place to stay!!
