There were a few paddlers that morning so the lot was pretty full by the time I returned just shy of noon time so unloading from the water and mounting it on the SUV was kind of difficult. Park as close to the loading area as you possibly can. I highly suggest when you pull into the lot, keep to your left towards the alcove of trees you will see where you can get in the water otherwise it's a difficult portage due to all the parked cars and steep embankments on the right side. People tend to complain when you whack their Land Rover with your kayak. All and all, a good time had.
