We were there on a beautiful summer evening. The parking was bad, so be prepared to walk. Very crowded. We had our boat docked there in the 80's. Very happy we no longer have our boat! Way too crowded and conjested for me.

I am not sure becauseI wasnt there to rent a boat, only to walk around and look at the sites. But I do remember people renting boats for certain parties years ago... it might be something you want to call and check on.
