Possible kite spot. sandy beach supposedly around this area.
Yea I’ve kited banks lake a couple of times. Both times wind was out of the south. As you turn into steamboat rock state park go about 100 yds and there is an old rd taking off to the right and left. I went left about another 100 yds and road kinda crumbles off into the lake. There is a little bay there with mostly sandy bottom and pretty shallow. If the water level is high as I suspect it might be right now there is virtually no beach to rig on but check it out.
First time I was there wind was weak but fairly steady, the second time the wind was insanely gusty like 5 g 25.
It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
