I spent a bit of time backpacking in the Adirondacks - shelters everywhere - lean-tos.  Almost like little neighborhoods. 

"Today, the program comprises of 175 structures found all over the Adirondack Park"

Adirondack Almanak

My favorite:

Duck Hole

A hurricane busted the dam, swept away the bridge and drained the "hole".  Now it is a wetland.  I had my bachelor party at that lean-to.   Canoed 3 lakes and a few miles of portage to get there.

We also really like the ones in Mount Mansfield State Park in Vermont. Mount Mansfield is the highest peak in Vermont and is the backside of Stowe Ski Area. During “Leafing Season” it was blissfully uncrowned and beautiful. The Long Trail passes nearby and there are a number of summit trails some of which are nontrivial. The other side with Stowe and Trapp Family Resort is an expensive madhouse then.
