The nearest shelter heading north from DWG is Brink Road Shelter which is about 25 miles, heading south it would be Kirkridge Shelter about 6 miles from DWG.

Forgot the Harpers Ferry shelter-that would be Ed Garvey which is 2 miles north of HF.

In addition, you might consider over-nighting at the AMC's Mohican Center, 10.5 miles North of DWG.

I believe at least some of the facility is open year-round. See www.mohicanoutdoorcenter.com for details/contact information.

As for Harpers Ferry, David Lesser shelter is 9.4 miles South of Harpers; Ed Garvey shelter is 6.4 miles North of the town.
