I know all the Islands in that area have either at least on privy or thunderbox. The ones I remember on Follensby are privies, but they may have been recently replaced. I haven't been there in a...

I've never had many issues personally. Far more with roadside or campground camping, but once I did have a stranger steal my last beer at a lean to.

He took it and left to go camp somewhere else...

In a place like PLW, I don't expect anyone to share that lean to. There's better spots to camp on the Peninsula anyway.

I typically feel people out when another group comes up. Have a chat, see...

No Fulton fish for me, thanks!

I'll carry a 6 pack for you out to Queer Lake, and no further. I don't think we'll get a fish fry out of the deal either, but it's a lot quieter and cleaner than...

OH I realize what you said before.

I believe the LT I stayed in 25 years ago was the Dunning LT.

I didn't see it last time I was on the lake, but I guess I thought it was more on the...

Hey! I want a beer too!

I'm really confused about the LT. I knew about the double on the west shore, and could easily see it from my canoe. That's not the one I was thinking of.

If it was...

Screamen Eagle is literally right over the inlet in Inlet. It's impossible to miss, it's a big red building on the corner of the intersection of Rt 28 and South Shore Rd.

I gotta be honest, I...

172 Route 28, Inlet, NY 13360-1604

That's the address I get.

And it's definitely in the village of Inlet. Eagle bay is about 2 miles west.


I think the detours people mentioned didn't...

Well I must be mistaken.

I stayed at the North lean-to by hiking from Windfall Pond TH through Pigeon Lakes and through Raquette Lake Village, and down Canoe Carry, I guess. This was 25 years ago...

First time I hiked it was 25 years ago and it was VERY hard to follow then. It's probably been cleared once in that time.

Can you not get a beer at Raquette Lake Tap Room anymore?

You could do...

That section sucks - and it's cord and hewn two-stringer bridges, which are slippery as hell. That trail is quite wet.

The whole traverse is quite wet. You really only get out of the lowlands in...

Technically you can do this as a day hike, but it's pretty rugged, so my suggestion is to go slow and enjoy the nicer spots.

My rec is do a night at Chub or Queer, then hike out past Pigeon to...

I have a Helinox as well (older so not sure if it's the same model as discussed) and I love it. I don't always use it though. Depends on the trip and how much weight I want to carry. It's a bit...

Also, not sure if fishing is legal in John Pond, but it has a nice little lean-to and it's a scenic location. The trail is popular for skiing and is definitely pulk-able.

I seem to recall a split with a sign directing one to King's Flow from the John Pond trail, but I have not taken it.

IIRC, John pond TH did not have a parking area either, it was just a snowplow...

Interesting insight. Not sure it makes complete sense to me, but I'll say this, it would be more akin to leaving a tire or door in the parking space, not a whole vehicle. I wouldn't touch or move...

This was my thought exactly. Only if it was obvious that no one had been there for a couple days would I do anything.

Honestly I don't pay that much attention to most other campers, but I could...

Well I'd only do this in a case like the OP state where I KNEW this is what they were doing and I'd risk it. I'd like to see them prove their tent was there on Thursday and that I took it down. It...
