I stayed here on 4/20 after getting a late start out of Duncannon. The shelter is good with a picnic table and privey. No problems with rodents.

The Shelter Needs Repairs - Broken Roof Beams
And A Broom - I Couldn't Sweep All The Spiders And Mud Wasp Nests.
I Hammocked Near The Trail.
The Train And Interstate Noise Lasted All Night.

I'll always remember the Clarks Ferry shelter. During my 2001 thru, I had flip-floped and my hike ended in Duncannon. I spent my last night, in a shelter, on the AT there. It was Oct 12 and I spent it alone.

Stopped for lunch 5/18 small SH but fantastic birds!!!!!!!!!!!!! saw a scarlet Tanager and indigo buntings here. fantastic!

Roof has a small break at the front I doubt it would leak in to the SH. Spring was running

Great day hike up from Clarks Ferry Bridge to the Clarks Ferry Shelter. The Spring was running strong & clear. Nice break at shelter (sorry, no pic).

Recent update, Sept 5th, 2010: There is no water flowing from the pipe at all. However, there is a small pool of water that has seeped out and made it to the surface...if you have a pump/filter or a small cup to dip and strain, you'll be okay. Guess we need some rain up here...
