Set high in the sky at 3,750 ft. and along the Kinsman Pond shore, this recently rebuilt log style shelter has two single and two double rent platforms. Rough it with water from the pond, a composting privy and a bear box.

Great view of Kinsman Pond right at the shelter! Nearby tent platforms fill up quick, so get there early!

Heading north along the A.T in the rain is one of the toughest vertical descents in the Whites.
