Just wondering if anyone has stayed in these sites before? We reserved a site (916) that looks like we have a small beach to moor our boat into. Is there a back country outhouse? Any boat concerns? Picnic tables?

Thank you! Called the park office and they answered a few questions. Yes on the picnic tables and vault toilet. I does seem as if my specific site has a tiny little bay that I can wedge the boat into after navigation through a reef of destruction. Hopefully when I arrive the water is calm enough for me to identify potential underwater hazards. I also hope I can tie the boat off well enough at night to keep it from bashing into the rocks during thunder storms and high winds/waves. I know it'll be worth the risk if I'm super careful/focused to not wreck my gear. I really want to get the wife a master angler trout or pike this weekend.

We park a 18ft lund back there regularly. The bay does provide some relief from the typical waves there. We typically put our anchor on shore and tie off to the rocks. There are some underwater features that could cause damage but someone in the front of your boat should be able to spot for you. The bay holds fish and East bay, the one just south, has good fishing. it has shallow flats that hold pike and deeper water by the rocks for trout. If you like crawfish there are plenty of big ones by the big rock on the shore of the bay, which you will notice. I typically catch enough for a crawfish boild that feeds ten in a couple of hours. Lots of critters out there that will raid any food not stored properly.
