good hammock sites can be found, but you may want to bring the small tarp as it can get tight.
the surrounding area offers awesome red fish and trout fishing.
there are some smaller islands not far from there that are technically free first come first serve but dont expect much privacy on the weekends.
the islands in the nat seashore are pretty private but a decent amount of boat traffic can be found there.

the only bad thing about these sites is they are only able to be reserved a week in advance, but with plenty of islands that shouldnt be a problem.
True about the reservations but a bit of careful planning can ensure you get the camp you want. I'll start calling 12 days from the start of our trip to check availability, if it starts to get tight, I'll add a few days on the front end and reserve earlier.
