    Default ED Garvey Shelter

    Are there places at the ed garvey shelter to pitch a tent? That is, we plan to camp at that location but would prefer a tent to using the shelter? Any open sites?

    Also, we plan to stay saturday night in mid-september. Several people have indicated that it can be a noisy area (popular with scout troups, etc). Any sense on whether scout or other noisy groups may be there after the end of summer and in mid-septmber?

    thanks

    Thanks. I'll be traveling with my 6 year old and we want to set down near some water. We'll look close by for a place.

    There are at least four or five nice tent pads right around the Garvey shelter.
