At 2,371 feet in elevation, this site has no formal development and care is needed when crossing side channels. Crossing is not recommended if water is flowing. Hand launching for lightweight crafts for boating.
There are 2.8 miles of hiking trails in the park with eight interpretive signs along the trails. The signage speaks to the island's wildlife and history. There is no visitor center, camping or staff at this location.
