Can anyone pass on info on water availability at Johns Spring shelter. Guide book says it's iffy. Probably true, just looking for a current report.

BTW, this shelter was at one time called the Boy Scout shelter and was renamed when it was rebuilt.

When I was there three nights ago, Johns Spring Shelter has absolutely no water.
Zero, zilch, nada, nichivo.
The spring for Catawba Shelter is also bone dry.
Which means a 8.4 mile stretch without a drop to be found, and the flow at both Campbell Shelter and Lambert's Meadow doesn't look so good.
Fill up whenever you get a chance!
Don't repeat my mistake!!
