Question Forked Lake Site 50

For 2 days we are are going to stay at site 50 soon and am looking for feedback on the site and tips. never camped on an island before. We will be accessing by canoe. I am wondering the following:
1. is there a pit toilet on the island
2. is there a small dock or other access point for the canoe
3. is there a fire pit and picnic table
4. any special equipment suggestions
5. probably need to make 2 trips to island , one to bring firewood.
6. how is the fishing, what types of bait are best
7. I heard it was windy on that site?
8. how far is site 50 from the parking area. I assume you can park your vehicle on shore.

Any tips or hints will be much appreciated, Thanks

It has been a number of years since I stayed there.

There is a pit toilet, picnic table, fire pit and bear box.

No dock when I was there, but good for canoes.

You will need to canoe about 3/4 to a mile from parking area.

It can get windy, I prefer the land sites.

It is shallow on the west side of island.

Have fun, it is a great place.

I pulled out a 4lb largemouth bass in the deep section on a plastic worm. I was at about 20ft of water near the dropoff to 40ft. I've never caught a largemouth that deep before or since.
