Fodor's Expert Review Rock Island State Park
Life on the 912-acre, car-free Rock Island, home to this state park, is simple and rustic. Ferries depart daily from Jackson Harbor on the northeast tip of Washington Island. Only hike-in and backpack camping is permitted, although day trips are encouraged. Pottawatomie Lighthouse, on the island's far-northern tip, is Wisconsin's oldest lighthouse, fully restored to how it might have operated around 1910. Daily tours are led by live-in volunteer docents.
