Sites 1, 5, and 7 have the most privacy, with long trails leading off the path to more remote sites (stay with the paths to their end - you'll be glad you did). Site 4 also has a long winding path, but strangely winds up near Site 8 and not far from the trail.
Site 3 is picturesque, under a large single oak close to the trail. Sites 2, 6 and 8 are also just off the trail but with decent surrounding trees for hammocks.
The Windmill trail is an easy path, so for a more challenging hike you can do some of the trails on the East side of the park and take the Gorman-Windmill connection trail over.
