Recently visited the park for a one night camping trip. Upon arrival we were taken over to the island by ferry by a park ranger (could have been staff or volunteer). This ranger was nice and helpful. The day went fairly well, until night set and more campers arrived. Quiet time is meant to be 11 pm, and when we arrived the ranger gave us a paper telling us that if there were any issues to call either number on the paper for help. So heres the issues, our neighbors decided to invite 2 other campsite's members to their site to "hang out". Little did we know this would be a disaster. They were talking extremely loud and drinking within 4 feet of our tent and urinating outside on the trees surrounding our tent. The neighbors also had two dogs, who should've been kept on a leash but were not and kept running off and stepping all over our tent and the owner didn't even bother to call them back to their site. This loud obnoxious behavior went on for 5 hours, three of those hours being after the so called "quiet time". We called the park manager and ranger station several times and left a message, although no one answered. Eventually we went to the "campground host" site and woke him up to come over and talk to the neighbors. He did so 2x's, the noise quieted for about 15 minutes each time, during which our neighbors made rude comments about the campground host and us and made plans to make the next night a big "party night". We were trapped, as there is no way off the island till 8 am and we were certainly not going to put ourselves in danger by confronting these people.
We slept for about 4 hours, got up packed up and left, probably never to return again. Its too bad too, as this park has a neat concept and a clean campground, although not much to do.
Here's some issues with this park, all of the 3 phone numbers we called had no response, that is what they told us to call if there was an emergency or problem! What if there had been an emergency? What if these neighbors decided to seek revenge on us for "telling" on them. When we got to the rangers office in the morning, it was before 8 (before the first ferry runs) so we waited, the ranger was extremely rude to us, we wanted to tell him about all the issues of the night before but he was not approachable. He took us back to the car, not even bothering to hook the ferry to the dock, parking crooked and told us to "go ahead". WOW. glad I didn't fall in.
It's very scary to be in a situation like this, where everyone around you has no common courtesy and are just rude, and you can't just pack up and walk away, because you're stuck till someone gets there to take you home. Beware of this. They need to get this park in order.
