Have you been there recently? What’d you think? Any travel suggestions?
Matt, You got my curiosity up so My wife and I took a ride there yesterday. I haven't been on the island since 1975. The campground looked pretty well laid out with some larger buildings one of which looks to be still under construction as you enter the park. We drove around a bit but didn't stop anywhere so I can't tell you much about activities etc. or amenities.
The road going in is a little narrow and quite windy. I'd recommend going slowly should you meet someone coming the other way. If anyone was towing a trailer with wide towing mirrors I'd also recommend they pull the mirrors in or remove them for the trip from Rt. 178 onto Snow Shoe Rd. until you get onto the island. The vehicle coming the other way might have wide mirrors. You'll see what I mean.
There weren't many campers in the park. Didn't stop to count them but I'd guess 35 to 40. Some nice units too. The lots are gravel and look spacey. All the roads within the park are paved.
No doubt the reservations will fill quickly. Be prepared. Enjoy your stay.
