CommentsThis site is for non-motorized vessels only. Cross the railroad tracks off of Rt. 135 and you'll see a sign and gate which mark the entrance road. Follow the road to the open, grassy field which serves as parking for cars and trailers. This site is along an unimproved area of the shoreline that can be muddy and slick. Poison Ivy is also common during warmer months.
