We stayed a 3 huts on a 4-day hike and I reviewed Lakes & Madison elsewhere ... but I have to say Mizpah was our favorite. The croo was exceptionally friendly and accomodating. The hut was at half-capacity and we were allowed to slect the bunk of our choice. We ended up in a 4-bunk room on our own ... very nice. The food was excellent (at all of the huts). The staff was very helpful if necessary. Loved meeting other folks with similar goals, sharing the chilly weather and the lack of showers. I would get a cotton sleeping bag liner if you are going to use the wool blankets provided as you do not feel the itch of the wool. Loved being in the beautiful mountains!

Our fourth stay at an AMC hut and as good as always. Great staff, yummy and delicious food--and accommodated our dietary needs. We had a seven year old daughter with us who loved scampering around on the ramparts behind the lodge for hours. Great family spot if you are willing to put in a few miles up a moderately steep trail to get there.

For those of you that enjoy hiking/backpacking this area may be for you. I did not spend a night here, but I did stop in at one hut during a day hike.

They are clean and convenient. The locations are breath taking. The hiking is hard.

If you dont spend a night,it still is a nice place to meet other hikers and chat.

I've enjoyed several visits to all except Lonesome Lake. My favorite is Gale Head since it is a bit more remote and less crowded.

My husband and I just returned from a fantastic stay at the Mizpah Springs Hut, 2.7 miles up the historic Crawford Path. The trail is a steady and at times steep incline, but the sound of the river and beautiful mosses, toadstools and ferns rejuvenated our senses as we climbed mindfully up the rocky path. We were warmly welcomed by the Croo and settled into our bunk spaces before enjoying a sumptuous supper and after, an evening presentation by several Thru hikers ( hiking the entire Appalachian trail. ) Having visited the huts many times over the years, we know we can always count on meeting interesting people, having great, hearty meals, learning more about the AMC's ongoing efforts to conserve energy and resources and preserve the pristine wilderness of the White Mountains. The Croos never fail to engage the guests, whether through nature programs, hilarious skits and excellent trail advice. On this particular evening there were 10 Thru hikers bartering labor for a dry place to sleep and leftovers to eat, which the Croo arranged seamlessly while still attending to the needs of the paying guests. Hiking and staying in an AMC hut is about as unique an experience as one can have, and the memories seem to linger longer. There is definite effort, but the rewards are great: beauty, solitude, camaraderie and spirited hospitality in the huts and most of all, a sense of soul restoring balance in this crazy, speeded up world.
