Notes: Very nice camping at lock 20
1) It had to be far enough above the water so that a large wake at high tide wouldn’t flood it out.
2) It had to be at least as big as my tent.
Those seem like simple enough stipulations but many times I had to stretch one or both of those rules in order to call a spot of land campable.
With a warm full belly and an overstuffed kayak, I said good by and headed west.
