Food & Shelter: Bring your own food and water as none is available on site. Sleeping on board is the first choice, there is camping in primitive campsites on the Island, mosquitoes are fierce on shore, not bad on the water, bring a tent!
There are mooring buoys on the North side of the Island, but if conditions allow we like to anchor on the south side, toward the east end of the island where there is a small coarse sand beach and peninsula.
The park offers four primitive campsites on the north shore bay. The pay station is near the eastern campsite. A vault toilet is in the woods 100-feet south of the campsites. The rest of the island is a Natural Area Preserve, off limits to recreational use. Standard primitive campsite rules apply.The overnight parking fee is in effect at Cornet Bay boat launch.
Hope Island offers five mooring buoys. Moorage fees are charged year round for mooring at docks, floats, and buoys from 1 p.m. to 8 a.m.
