Below is only what we have heard, or read. Government (we assume) does what it thinks best for the public; we hope they've considered the needs of small boat sailors.

New/updated docks and soft launch area?

This year, in the existing launch area, they will be updating docks, and adding a soft launch area (for kayaks only?) We do not know what, nor when, they will commence nor complete their plan/s, nor what dates we may be without any docks? Hearsay has it May 15th is goal for docks.

New building/restaurant

Stony Creek has demolished the old, boat storage area and is in process of repurposing "prime, lake-front" area. HEARSAY: the current building in the launch area (with vending machines and bathrooms) will be changed/demolished/replaced? Parking will be increased? A restaurant will be built? (Where, what, when, we do not know.)

Boat storage

Rental boat storage was moved across the road last year; rates are $600 for the 2017 summer season.
