In 2009, the GMC hatched plans to replace both Lula Tye Shelter and Little Rock Pond Shelter with a single post and beam structure. This move would consolidate camping opportunities while still providing a few more secluded tent platforms. To help proctect water quality the old pit privies would be replaced by a single mouldering privy.
That year, the U.S. Forest Service hosted youth archeology camps around the area that uncovered information on the Abenaki’s ancestors,
This post and beam style structure was build in the summer of 2010. A caretaker was put on duty near the shelter to maintain the site and collect fees for its use.
Tenting platforms are located near the shelter and a group tenting are is located nearby, just north of the pond.
