The two lean-tos at Deerland are pretty easy to find. You'll find then down the hill near the river but before you actually reach the water. One is immediately to the left of the trail and easy to see. The other is off to the right and a bit more in the woods but with a good light, you should be able to find it easily enough.

Another option is to drive further up that same road. About a mile above Buttermilk Falls you'll see a right turn that goes off to Forked Lake campground; make the right. Not far down that road you will see a trail with a gate across it. Just down that trail there is a lean-to on the Raquette River. If you see a car at the gate my guess is it will already be occupied but if there's no vehicle, it could be open; although a canoe group might be down there so check it out first.

That's all for now. Enjoy your trip and until next well.
