Description

Hankering for a hike on the Appalachian Trail? Best stop by the Garfield Ridge Shelter operated by The Appalachian Mountain Club. The campsite is located on the Garfield Ridge Trail, just northeast of Garfield’s summit. The shelter is an 'Adirondack' style with two single and five double tent platforms. A natural spring is nearby for some freshwater refreshment. We can taste the cool, crisp mountain water already!

It's astonishing that over five years after Charlotte C. in her comment offered some expert corrections to this listing, the mistakes are still here on this page. Come on, Hipcamp! That isn't very hip! No fires, no picnic tables here. Over at the USDA Forest Service page for this campsite, you can find accurate information and current pricing. Enjoy.

I was the Caretaker for Garfield Ridge Campsite in 2015 and I will be there this summer (2016), too. There are some things wrong on this site about the campsite that are important for the protection of the Garfield Area. The activities at the site include Camping, Hiking, Wildlife Watching, and swimming 3 miles away.
Fires are NOT allowed and there is no grill- its bring your own cooking system. and there is NO picnic table.
I does cost $8 to stay here. The money is used to buy the bark I use to compost the toilet, and to pay the caretakers for our hard work.
Hope to see you up there a this beautiful spot!
