This is a really nice park, especially to camp. Nice views. And some pretty good fishing. Just a nice park, out on the island.

We drove by car all over the island, We saw a gorgeous sunset! Going over the bridge is a real thrill and you will probably see a big ship passing as you go over the bridge.

I did see a few golf carts, lots of bikes and skateboards. I'm not sure if only the staff are allowed the carts though. I'm sure if you call the office they would clarify it for you!!
