Hermit’s Shack is a bit of a misnomer -- with another whole campground just to the south, chances are you won’t be alone out here. Located in the north corner of the park, these primitive sites are a 3.5-mile hike from the main parking lot. You’ll find fire rings at each site, but not much else -- so be sure to pack plenty of drinking water. ###
