The Compactor Pool north side has a parking lot and a boat launch. From the parking lot you can walk to the left upstream or the right downstream towards Pulaski.
The reason the why the pool is called the Compactor is because of its proximity to the recycling center which happens to compact cars and sheet metal.
This area does not get as crowded as pools above the Pineville Pool and if there lots of fishermen all you have to do is walk just a few steps and and you will fishing with lots of space around you.
During the fall there was a food truck that was selling food and the price seemed decent.
