is permitted in the Adirondacks on state lands, and these
areas offer numerous locations for overnight camping and
day use. Adirondack Leantos are for the temporary use of
overnight travelers and unless caught in a storm, they should
not be used for more than one night. Canoesist should be
prepared and carry their own tents in the event that leanto
space is not available. In the event of cold weather, or
buggy conditions a leanto is not the recommended form of
overnight shelter. When camping on State land in the Adirondacks,
larger groups must obtain an interior use camping permit
for any overnight use (larger groups are defined as approximately
6-12 people). Smaller groups and individuals also require
a permit from the DEC if they use the same location for
more than three nights in a row. You need to get these permits
in advance from the area forest ranger, whose address is
available from the DEC.
