Can anyone give info on current water source condition and tent site situation at crampton gap shelter?

As far as tenting goes, there are tent sites a-plenty at Crampton Gap Shelter. There are tons of sites off the blue blaze trail between the AT and the shelter, there are even benches in the area. For water, just walk the side trail down to Gathland State Park and water up down there.

I'll second the Gathland State Park suggestion .. lots of beverage options.

thanks especially for water info. just to fine tune the description; the shelter is down a steep blue blazed trail some distance from the AT. the side trail to gathland state park starts at the shelter and is a .25 mile, level almost-fireroad access path which brings you to a field in the park. you're pointed right at the large picnic pavillion, which is right accross the street from the vending machines (flat empty yesterday) and WATER!
