Camping at Boreas Ponds

I know there are probably no designated campsites yet, but is 150' camping allowed.
Thanks, Turtle

Wish I had the answer!

I was wondering that myself. I plan to visit Boreas Ponds first week in October and tow my canoe in with a mountain bike. Not sure what will happen between now and then with designation?

We camped for four days last fall. We camped 150' or more, took three - four hours of stumbling through the woods to find a spot for two single tents. Lots of thick, wet, rocky, and steep. Only looked on First, Second, and towards third ponds. Good luck.

That is precisely the reason I went to hammock camping several years ago. No more thrashing around looking for a fairly clear open spot to set up even a tiny solo tent. Now I can find a suitable spot with nicely spaced trees in only a minute or two almost anywhere I may go. Set up sleeping space and camp over brush, rocks, uneven hummocks, on steep hillside slopes, or even in a wet swamp, it doesn't matter.

Yes, standard rules apply:

Best spot, unless it's marked "No Camping" might be where the former lodge was.
