parking has become a huge problem at Sheps. There seem to be many long term trailer parkings in the upper lot and the lower lot is almost always full in early season. This began when the ramp become free so maybe its just more people launch there now that they can save $20...I was just shocked how crazy that place is coincidentally when launching became free.

Obviously Sheps won't invest any funds to improving parking (even though that also benefits their customers...a little. Since the town no longer draws revenue...I can see why they wouldn't pay to expand parking. Like other launches on the lake...it is becoming unusable after 9AM on weekends.

Now with slips disappearing...there will be an increased need for parking trailers etc by the island residents. I'm not sure what agency would be willing to bear the burden of another parking lot on the north side of Lovejoy Sands Rd.
