Can someone give me a description or maybe a pic ? I know these shelters vary from site to site. I plan on staying soon and wanted to know what to expect.

Thanks !

Thanks for the info. I stayed at Harpers Creek shelter this past Friday night (1.13.06) during a heavy rain storm. The shelter protected us well. Very comfortable with a great view of the creek. There is a waterfall about .4 miles up the creek and it was gushing due to the heavy rains. It is aprox. 40-50 feet tall and not on any maps that I can find. It is definitely worth the hike to check that out.

Yep...I have hiked this section of trail many times. Harpers creek is a great shelter. I usually stay at Maupin Field though.
