Honestly if Windsor would open both entry lanes it would not even be much of an issue at all. They seem to wait until there is complete gridlock on every surrounding road and then open the second entry lane.
They need a lane for pass holders, and one where RV check ins can happen those take a lot of time.

Campbell Cove isn’t going to be happy. That basically bypassed them as the Goto fuel spot
They are saying all business on industrial will remain open? Not sure how that’s gonna work, walk down and fill some gas cans for the boat?

although I'm not setting foot near a launch ramp this weekend my first thought was the same....wtf did campbell cove do to piss someone off. They are the ones that will really suffer for this.

But I'll admit, last weekend that interesection in to the launch was a cluster. I got in to a little scuffle with 2 cars that thought they'd bypass the line by going straight throught he left turn on industrial going in. Thankfully...when I jumped out of the truck I was greeted by LHPD and casually told me to go ahead and get back in the truck they would handle it. And no...they were not CA plates but NV

Not judging...but do you normally jump out of your vehicle to engage in Road Rage type incidents? Or were you planning on directing traffic? :)

Still only one lane going in. And with two lanes open and moving faster, won't that just move the grid lock into the parking lot all the way to the ramps. Ramps are already going as fast as they can.

It was ridiculous gridlock on the streets, I drove right to the ramp and launched with no line and 3 lanes open. Inside the state park looked like a normal weekend aside from the parking.

I noticed quite a few people put their boats in at Windsor for overnight parking for this morning.

And FWIW you can easily access Campbell Cove the way they have the streets blocked. You can access Campbell Cove from London Bridge Road, then circle back to London Bridge Road via Kiowa to access Windsor.

I thought the guy that set up his BBQ truck in the West Marine parking lot was brilliant! Not so much now......

I was two cars behind you. We were all thinking this was going to get interesting. I watched and the Cops didn't do shit to those two cars.

I hadn't done that in quite some time and honestly didn't intend to do it then, but when I decided to go around and pull in front of him the 2 guys in front decided I was in the wrong and gave me the fuck you what are you going to do about so I guess I decided I'd let them know. I'm actually glad the cops were there and cool with me seeing how they saw the whole thing. Just a little of the old days slipped out for a minute lol
