View Full Version : VA shelters crowded on July weekends ?

Looking at staying at Harpers Creek and Paul Wolfe shelters during Friday / Saturday in July.

Any experiences on what crowds to expect ?

Want to sleep in a shelter, don't like tent camping (I'll be carrying a tent for sure).

Thanks !

Paul Wolfe is a palace, Harper's Creek is the typical saltbox. Both will have plenty of water and tent space available. As for people- most NOBOs are already north of there. You might be by yourself(unlikely) or hanging out with a bunch of Boy Scouts.

We did troutdale to white top and it was super crowded this week
