  • Obviously you need a boat to visit the island. It was only accessible to us by swimming from the boat. I suggest that people wear sturdy water shoes as the shoreline is rocky.

  • Beautiful island filled with wildlife and great hikes! We paid $45/person for the ferry from Big Arm to the island however you can also rent kayaks/paddleboards and leave them at the island while you walk around. If you take the ferry, you have to make reservations and you have 3.5 hours to explore the island before they pick you back up. 3.5 hours was more than plenty to take the trails around the island and see the wild horses, big horn sheep, mule deer and bald eagles. A must do if you’re staying in/around Lakeside
  • So much fun!! We got to see the horses🥰🥰 and they're absolutely beautiful!! Would definitely recommend!
