Beware of car break-ins - There has been many vehicle break ins recently at this parking area. These guys that are hitting the cars are pros.
They are in and out of your car in less than 1 minute and leave no signs of breaking in. Cash and credit cards are taken but they leave the wallets. Cards are used within minutes. Small valuable items are taken too.
Watch out! Report all break-ins to the State park rangers.
