Hermit Lake Shelter is about 2.5 miles up from Pinkham Visitor Center/Trailhead, so you're about halfway to summit – perfect place to camp for a sunrise hike. 

Restrooms, tent platforms and lean to shelters are all available at this USFS dispersed camping site right next to the AMC caretaker…

  • The AMC Hermit Lake hut - can't sleep here but enjoy the deck!

  • our 3p tent on a single platform - easily could have fit another tent
