On the occasional time it has happened, I've felt sort of bad moving in a lean-to with a couple that was obviously expecting to have it to themselves. I sort of get it, they probably weren't familiar with lean-tos enough to know that they tend to be popular destinations for camping, or know that it's expected that they'll be shared between groups up to the capacity of the lean-to. But at the same time, I don't feel that bad- with 3 million acres of public land, there's no shortage of options for them to go pitch a tent somewhere, and enjoy pretty much guaranteed privacy.

Any empathy disappears entirely when they've already got a tent pitched inside the lean-to, though. At that point, it's straight up "move over, I'm coming in."
