How do rangers handle these cases of camping within 150’ of water (without being at a designated site)? A fine? I see this fairly often, and am not sure how much the depleted ranger forces even care to be informed of what must be countless instances? Or if they’re strung out fighting bigger battles?

As many have said, this year has been concerning. The combination of a warm, dry summer and Covid (no work, no money to go to normal far off vacations, a desire to be with friends outdoors, etc) leave me worried that more and more parts of the ADK are being loved to death. I worry that our areas like Lila can’t sustain the increased use. Fireworks, packed launches and trailheads, and roadside litter seem the norm this summer. I hope it’s a Covid anomaly and more “regular” usage returns in 2021.
