      Bring your own kayak or canoe if you wish or you can rent one here. Hammocks Beach is a great place to launch from and enjoy scenic coastal features as well as fishing, hiking and special programs. You can also swim and camp on Bear Island , which you can paddle to yourself or reach by ferry. Campsites are available all year, with full amenities in season. And yes, there really are good places to put up a hammock.

      If you go:
      The park and the park office are open every day except Christmas. Ferry service during warmer months only, and schedule subject to change.
