Although all 45 or so Brite Lake campsites were sold out for the three-day holiday weekend, many of the well-manicured sites were still unoccupied and attendance appeared to be light by late Saturday afternoon.

Park staff had the lake grounds exceptionally clean, including the restrooms.

Perhaps the very unusual 105-degree lakeside temperature as of 3 p.m. Saturday had some bearing on holiday attendance.
