Description

Near the intersection of the Nehantic and Pachaug trails, Dry Reservoir Shelter is a year-round backpack campsite established along Blue Blazed Hiking Trails. It has a limited amount of Adirondack-type camp shelters, but just to be safe, you should bring a tent should someone have already set up shop. Also be prepared to bring your own drinking water. The good folk of the Connecticut Forest and Park Association ask that you only stay one night so that other backpackers moving through the region can share the space.
