    I believe so. I think that is what their website said, but I can't remember all of the details. When I called all they said was that the group site was available for reservation, so I reserved it.

    I won't know for sure if I can make this hang until Wednesday. I do have some questions. Do we know what park facilities will be available to us? Raiffnuke if I can make it will the offer to use a sleeping bag or TQ still be available to me? I really want to make this hang but weather may make it tough for me as snow and ice clean up is part of my job. My boss will let me know Wednesday based on the weather we may get up here if I can leave town for the weekend.

    I was up there two weeks ago. The group site is all that's open (its on the other side of the mt at the bottom of the hill). This is primitive camping. There's a decent on site compost toilet. The water is at ranger hq.

    Yes, if you can make it, I will have some extra insulation that you can borrow to suppliment what you have.

    I'd love to make it, but will be out of town with the family living out the script of 'National Lampoon's Thansgiving Vacation'.

    Looking forward to a TR and pics of this spot. Not too many camping spots open in the winter in Mass.

    The DAR group campsite was pretty nice. Very large and many options to hang. The outhouse was very nice (for what it was ) everything was clean and tidy. Definetely a place to look at for future hangs!

    I will post pictures and a trip report soon.

    Scout Camping

    I was scout camping this past weekend, so couldn't attend. I'll be checking back in to see about future hangs in the New England area. I really like camping / hiking out in western Mass, NH, etc., so if someone else plans another hang up here, keep me posted.

    PS if there really is a NEHHA, put me down as a member
