Dry Reservoir Shelter (Lean-to)

Not far from the Nehantic Trail and the Pachaug Trail split, lies the Dry Reservoir shelter. The Dry Reservoir shelter is short in comparison to the other shelters in the area, with no actual standing room. The shelter is wide enough to accommodate several people, more if you don’t mind getting cozy.
Well equipped with a saw and fire grate, the shelter has an ample fire pit and plenty of seating.
There is a running stream nearby that may dry up during the summer. Remember to boil and or filter your water.
