Didn't sleep here but there are fish in the narrows right here. Throw crank baits for pike. Here's the video:

This is a great SE facing site. The drawback is, it's on a channel so all traffic goes right by. The site itself has 2 main areas, one lower just up from the water which has the fire grate and is open with multiple tent pads. Further up is a red pine grove which is perfect for hammocks (or more tents). I hammock camp so absolutely fell in love with the upper area. Often used.
