About the accommodations mentioned in the journal: As of 2014, Sportsman’s Lodge is no longer in business. Rudy’s Cabins and Campground on Clarksville Pond still welcomes Cohos Trail hikers, although the charming camp I occupied has since been renovated and is now priced accordingly. Camping is available at Lake Francis, Deer Mountain, and Coleman State Parks. On the way to or from the Trail, travelers can still enjoy Robie’s Cabins on US 3 in Pittsburg village. The cabins, each with kitchenette, bathroom, and air conditioning, are conveniently located and reasonably priced.
