I just heard that the secret shelter is closed. Reportedly, the area still open for camping & water is avalable.
I hate to hear this, even tho I won't be in NY for quite a few years, it looked like a nice place. I strongly suspect, like many neat places along the AT, it was closed due to over use &/or misuse by hikers.
Olistery Pavillion comes to mind. In 83 Hikers were welcomed to STAY there, now its "OFF LIMITS TO HIKERS!" We cant even go near it.
