Wendell State Forest Lean-To
The Wendell Forest Lean-to is a shelter site close to the main entrance of Wendell State Forest. Nearby the trail skirts Ruggles Pond, a scenic area for hikers, picnickers, and other recreationists. The land is managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
The lean-to is a three-sided shelter in an open area surrounded by woods. Water sources are available within a short distance.
Reservations are not required but users are encouraged to make a reservation on our online calendar in order to post their ‘intent-to-stay’. The online submission does not guarantee a spot at the shelter, but helps inform others of availability
Lean-to is open, use is at the camper’s own risk and social distancing measures are encouraged. No sanitation maintenance currently in place.
