Better hand out poop bags to each visitor, there are no bathrooms down there, and people poop just like animals.

      I will never go there. I'm sure it is completely contaminated. Disgusting! We're turning into a third world state. So sad.

        They need to keep a ranger at the water, and one at the street level. The tourists are trashing it, and they park all over the highway. It’s hazardous.
