Woodhull and Bear Lake Lean to

Has anyone been to either lean to with in the past week or two? Headed up there this weekend and was just wondering if everything has dryed out since the recent down pours. Going with a few people that have never been in the woods before and wanted them to be prepared. Thanks a bunch!!!

I have not been there recently but a couple of years ago when I visited those areas the Bear Lake lean-to looked to be in a reasonably well drained spot but the path to the Woodhull Lake lean-to was a swamp. I can only imagine that it is much worse with the rain we've had. I would be prepared.

The Woodhull Lake Lean-to is also one of the closest lean-tos to water I've ever seen. The front of the lean-to is literally only about 5-10 feet from the shore. As I recall, though, the lean-to sits a few feet above the water level, so it'd take a lot of rain for the lean-to to be in the water, at least...

Thanks everyone

I am co adopter of the lean to and have been there many times just not this year/rainy season. Bringing a few newbies this weekend and want them to be prepared for the conditions even if it is a short hike.
