This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The limited access by boat only means less tourists and less noise, which creates a better environment to learn, observe and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings.
My wife and I camped for two days (next time it will be much longer). We arrived avia the Tropic Star at 3 pm, which is one of the only annoying things about this park. Late arrivals and early departures via the only charter company make your stay rushed.
You don't have to be a die hard camper to enjoy the sites but please do keep in mind to bring everything you will need for your stay. It being so remote makes it hard to find food or supplies. There is a small store ran by the rangers with limited supplies such as a few canned food matches firewood and your typical state park tourist merch.
Take time to enjoy the scenic trails and hope to see the gators and hogs(which we didn't get to see this time:/ ) you can either hike or bike the trails. Bike rentals and kyak rentals are available for a fare fee. We hiked and biked both are enjoyable and have their own cons. The bikes can't get through many sandy areas but you can cover more of the island with your bike.
Next time we are going to rent our own boat and bring our own kayaks to be ale to see more of the islands and the other remote areas and to create our own arrival and departure times to make our visit just a bit more enjoyable.
I recommend this site to all and can't wait to visit this remote island again!!!!!!!!!!!
