My wife and I went here on our Trip back in September. The ferry ride was nice. Once on the island, we drove to the Park. We walked from a parking area to the beach and were taken away by the beauty of Big Bay Beach. The water was clear and surpisingly warm ! The hiking trails were nicely marked and the plaques along the way were helpful in giving some history and information. On the way back to the docks, we passed a doe and her fawn right by the side of the road. Not more than 1/2 mile later, another set was on my side of the car. We stopped right next to them and I got some nice video and pictures, which I will add as soon as possible. Allow at least 3-4 hrs to explore the island / beach / trails.
