Hammocks Beach State Park Primitive Camping Professional Review and Guide
"The camping at Hammocks Beach State Park is hard earned, but worth the effort. That’s because there is no camping on the mainland park premises. Instead, the Hammocks Beach camping facilities are in a remote location out in the Atlantic Ocean on Bear Island. A seasonal passenger ferry leaves daily from the park, carting people and their gear out to the island. After crossing Cow’s Channel, you arrive at Bear Island, but you now have to hike 0.5 mile across the island to get to the campsites. Be sure to wear sandals or shoes. The sandy trail can often get desert hot, as can the campsites.
No pets are allowed on the ferry, but pets are allowed on the island, so if you want to bring Fido along, do so via private boat."
