    Post Jenkins Shelter Condition Report

    Stayed in this one back in November, 2003. It is of a simple design, w/ a fire ring, picnic table, & privy. A substantial stream for water is nearby. There is also room for scores of tents in the general vicinity.

    Although I got to experience a lunar eclipse the night I stayed there, I had to share the shelter w/ a coupe of hunters who were using it as their base camp for the week. It seems that this shelter is failry easily accessed by locals up an old road...

    Spent the night here after a rainy day in early June. Water from the fast-moving stream is just to the right of the shelter. Privy is left and behind.

    While there is space for tents around the shelter, there is a lovely creek with some great tent sites a tenth of a mile north.

    I can confirm that there are lot and lots of good places to tent around this shelter.
