Are the picnic tables found at the locks and lift bridges available for public use or are these reserved for the lock keepers and bridge tenders?

I stayed at Lock 5 on the Champlain Trail last year and there were tables, grills, on overhead shelter over 2 tables. Porta privy on the the other side of the lock. You are supposed to call ahead but I didn't and had no problems with the lock keeper. Even got water from the barrels they bring to the lock.
