Drakesbad is open to hikers and seems this year, with new management, is more hiker friendly than with the last managers.

I saw this information online and asked Piper’s Mom if I could post it up here and so here it is: Hope this helps you along your hike!

“Drakesbad is open to hikers and seems this year, with new management, is more hiker friendly than with the last managers.  Breakfast and lunch are about $12-14.  There is a special hiker dinner for about $14 and you do not need reservations.  If you want the 5-star menu it is about $22 and reservations are required.  There is no laundry, being renovated.  Do your laundry in Chester.  There is a new shower for hikers only and pool use will be considered on a hiker-by-hiker basis.  All of this is from my memory because I am away from my information, but it’s close.  Good luck, it’s a wonderful place.
