Your opinion but I disagree. What a lot of other people are doing and what I have a lot of experience with is what "my opinion is based on. If it were just me or if it was just a few crazy folks, it wouldn't hold much merit, but maybe you ought to go to that State park and then report back what you find. Do it in the spring, do it in the summer, do it in the fall. You'll see the same. I think the OP ask the question and will find merit in hearing some real world feedback. That is what I gave but then that is my opinion.
