Hmmm....
Yes that is Baypoint in the background.
The picture is just missing the edge of the beach. The sand...........errrrrr fine gravel is still at both beaches.

Not sure how long ago you left, but they did rename Whitepines picnic area to Lakeview Picnic area. This was to confuse the Stoners that hung out there. <ie: people I knew 25-30 years ago!>

Anyways............... I grew up at 26 mile and Mound. My dad taught us to sail at Stony. In fact my wife and I put in a Memorial bench at the western tip of the boat launch area. My mom said that we use to picnic there while sailing.

With the 90 windshifts from caused by the trees, it is a fun lake to sail on. Although with the Buccaneer it is certainly smaller then when sailing my Dads old boat. must be a speed thing.
