They are the chosen party sites, no water, etc. Even had we stayed at one, we would likely had camped away from the "designated" area.
We chose the site for asthetics not wind protection, but that protection was a quick walk away. As it turned out, we chose wisely anyway.
Well funny you should ask that question....I think I'm going out again next week for 2 nights and plan to do just that. I've been out there enough to know that no ranger ever comes out to check on who is there or isn't there. I'm definitely going to find a good location versus the designated spot. Right there on the shore of the lake is just crazy with the wind. If I go again....I'll let you know what happened.
