Yes, Rocks and Water Outfitters also has a brand new hostel, just East of
Caledonia State Park, on Route 30.  We (Junker and I) stopped at this hostel
(still under construction) while trying to track down missing hiker.  Three
hikers were in residence.  There are bunks, and a tv/vcr.  I'm sure there
will be toilets and a sink and the like soon.  We also met the store owner,
who was also on the prowl for the same hiker.  This was a 10pm, or maybe a
bit later.  It seems that both hostels are going to work together well, and
that both of the owners are very responsible...

Rocks and Water apparently also hosts canoing and hiking trips...
