The best thing about the island is being able to get away from the city, cement and traffic without going very far. If you squint, you can see the city across the lake, but it's so quiet out on the island. Playing in the sand at the beach was great. It's interesting to see the round sand. I guess it's very unique and illegal to remove the sand from the beach. The part of the beach we visited was so extensive that we could sit down and not worry about our children wandering away. It's a long way from the parking to the water. I wouldn't suggest the water. The beach right around the water was littered with debris and dead birds and it was yucky and mucky. We did not go swimming. When we went, the Bison corrals were rather empty. Not worth the drive to the corrals. Driving up to the viewpoint was neat. We loved the ranch. The park next to the ranch has really really tall trees that provide an okay sun cover for playing Frisbee with children during the day. We've taken our family to do crafts at the ranch 3 times over the years.
