While we were updating the sign, it was interesting that a kayaker stopped and thanked us. Apparently, there has been some confusion as to where the Barnett Creek was located. This would especially be true if one was coming from the Gulf into Barnett Creek Bay or were launching from here and wondered how to get to Barrnett Creek. Geodetic maps show McCormick Creek actually branching off to the left when coming in from the Gulf. Where the launch is located is really Barnett Creek. (submitted by Jay Bushnell)
