Common & helpful items often left behind by cabin visitors are:
- a new broom & dust pan
- good, ready-to-use firewood
- a new folding chair
(Hey, regulars -- please feel free to add to the list...)

I discourage folks from leaving, well, junk, like broken chairs, or old couches that quickly become rat infested. If you don't want it around your home, then folks likely won't want it around the cabins. And with some items, it is probably best to visit a cabin first to determine its needs. A few cabins have all the folding chairs one would ever need!

The nicest thing you can bring is the willingness to tidy up. Sometimes the visitors behind you will have included Mr. Clean, and sometimes not, but there's usually something around that could use a cleaning.

Also, consider what you might TAKE from the cabins, meaning OBVIOUS trash and garbage from other recent visitors. Please don't remove anything that looks like it might have been there for a while, however, as it may have value, either as a relic, or to the Friends of the cabin who oversee its maintenance. A rusty old bucket, even with holes, may come in handy for mixing cement some day, for example. But nobody would miss broken glass, litter and the like, if you care to take some along with you to the trash.
