Then they also  need to designate birdwatchers spots and photographers spots. To not do so only discriminates against birding. If i throw my kayak on my car or put a fishing pole in my car next to my all waters license, am i then allowed to park in these areas?

Though they are public facilities, Boaters pay yearly for licenses to support and maintain such specially-designed locations. If you're not towing a trailer, don't park in the spots designed for trailers, and everyone is happy. As ridiculous as they may seem, I'm sure the DEEP needed to put up those signs because of the few who don't think about or care about what those spots are really for.
