OK, thanks Zanzabar. I did drive south down the hiway on the west side of Walker Lake in July of 2018. I stopped at the self-serve BLM Sportsman's Beach campground there (which was empty) to look around. There was a notice in the public bathroom about an large aggressive swarm of spiders that annually infest the area in summer. That would seem to make this place pretty un-appealing during that time of year, especially to the women folk.
