We decided to camp on this island and state park. The park is so well kept and spacious. Just a gorgeous setting to call home for a few nights while visiting the area. I would highly recommend this state park.

Beautiful place to spend some time, the state park is full of campers, tents, motor homes, few cabins are available. Swimming, fishing, campfires. Always memorable

So Sorry, but I do not know. We just drove around on the island and were not concerned with any lodging there.

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!!
