I went back this morning and arrived about 9:45am. Was about to give up but a volunteer stopped and talked to me, then I saw one move. Then I saw another one close to the road so I took a few pictures. Only saw 2 but I didn't stay very long looking.

There is plenty of room to pull into the grass on the side of the road or you can park at the US Corps of Engineers Office and walk back (that is what I did).
