The Indian Mound trail is amazing! It's a good, long hike - but easy. There are boardwalks over the areas that get wet. The rest of the island is covered with fire breaks that can be hiked or biked.
There is a small Island Store that has drinks, snacks, frozen treats, and many camping & fishing necessities. They also have the cutest shirts with their owl totem on them - a big hit with the kids!
The ferry has been refurbished to be powered by batteries that receive their charge from solar panels on the boat's roof. The ride over is free, and the ferry runs until an hour before sunset.
Park admission is free, but there is an iron ranger labeled "Donations" right next to the ranger building.
Boat slips are available, but cannot be reserved. Canoes and kayaks can be rented, and paddling down to Blue Spring State Park can be an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.
Rustic cabins are available, and are very nice! There are 4 and 6 bed sizes. They all have screened porches with a bench and a table. The cabins are equipped with bunk beds, mattresses, ceiling fans, lights, and power outlets.
Tent sites are very roomy. Each site has a water spigot, fire ring, and a picnic table. There is a youth campground available.
The bath house has a men's and women's side, and it is easily accessed by all of the tent and cabin sites. There are toilets, sinks, and showers - just remember to bring your own soap and towels - thay are not provided.
There is a beautiful waterfront picnic are near the boat dock. There are BBQ grills, many picnic tables, a pavilion, restrooms, and a playground for the kids!
I hope you enjoy Hontoon Island as much as I do!
