for some time now, just never had the opportunity to paddle there.
AS I understand it, it is a Natl Recreation Area, with wilderness camping allowed via permit. There are also several developed campsites along the LBL shoreline. Seakayaker Mag had a great story about a LBL trip several years ago - you might contact SKM for back issues.
