Dennis Cove Road/USFS50
The 2008 Companion really built this place up...camp store, frozen pizza and burgers, ice cream and sodas, free internet, coffee at 8 am, etc.
However, my experience there was terrible. Arrived shortly after dark, and the place was dark. Office closed, no sign anywhere of the much anticipated frozen burgers, pizza, ice cream, which proved to be non-existent. The internet was down and was never brought back up in the 24 hours I was there. There is a decent hiker kitchen and a clean bunkhouse. That's it. The showers were NASTY and I had to wait on a night manager to arrive to locate towel and washcloth. There was no soap. This place is not owner managed and I think that makes a difference. I was told by the day manager that the main source of revenue for them is rental from cabins on the grounds as well as a conference center. I bailed out after the first night and got a ride into Hampton to stay at the Braemar Castle (interesting place) for a zero day. Don't know, in retrospect, why I didn't stay at Kincora, down the road in the opposite direction from the trail.
