We may be booked for camping through end of summer (or translation I've been boating too much and not working enough). We have had very good luck in October, and I'm sorta kinda thinking of doing a mid october trip. The pics below are both from October (the first 10/10, the second 10/26/11):
(water was still 70ish, believe it or not... and literally three other trucks/trailers in the dark day lot)
as for what garden point looks like in the spring when the water is high -- that's the "island" at the end of garden pt. (this was 6/25/11):
It sucked btw with the water that high because there is ZERO shoreline.... hard to anchor and unload. I'd rather the water be down 20' at least.
