The state, towns and periodicals are going to publicize this place to death.
No fireworks two weekends ago, but the parking lot was packed to the gills. I got the 2nd to last spot and then three more cars pulled in within the next 10 minutes. Sunday was peaceful and by Tuesday morning there were only 8-10 cars there.

However, after touring some of the camp sites, I think it's probably time to shut down some of the island sites and make them day use only - no fires. A couple in particular are mowed right down and the forest floor looks like something out of The Lorax with a handful of fresh cuts. Which is especially silly since a short paddle will take many a camper near the access road where there are tons of blowdowns and cleared trees available for trimming off some firewood.
