If you’re willing to put in the logistical preparation to visit Knight Island State Park, it will be well worth your time. It’s located 2 miles east of the mainland and only accessible by boat (your prearranged boat or an expensive water taxi). The island is dock-less so plan to anchor off unless you’re a skilled boatman and can beach on the rocks. There are remote sites with rustic lean-tos around the 2.5 miles of shoreline so get those legs ready! But, with the effort comes great reward. Each site offers ample privacy and your own beachfront along with all of the natural activities the location offers.

Knights Island is a fantastic camping location if you can get there. There are 7 camp sites: 1 tent, 6 lean-to site’s and one of these is a group site with 2 lean-to’s (that would be the Birch site).
We stayed at Stoney Point on east side. We loved the view & privacy - can't see or hear your neighbors. It had rained so the ground around our lean-to was muddy but we made do. Each site has its own latrine toilet, and picnic table; there is a ranger on the island if you need help and hey there is also cell service for those who need a little connection else turn it off and be off-grid. Hike the island or boat around it. Fishing was also popular. Day visitors use the public picnic area near ranger house.
