Description

The park's most popular island provides visitors with a variety of facilities.
There is a campground with picnic tables and barbecue grills. Additional picnic tables and barbecue grills are located on the south side of the harbor near the open-air pavilion.
Saltwater toilets are available, but since there is no freshwater or electricity on the island, there are no sinks or showers.
A half-mile hiking trail starts just east of the restrooms. The trail continues to the south end of the island curving back north and emerging near the pavilion and picnic area.
The island's crowning glory, and Biscayne National Park's de facto symbol, is the 65-foot ornamental lighthouse built by
Mark Honeywell, one of the island's former owners, in the 1930s. The lightouse is open intermittently whenever park staff or volunteers are on the island. The observation deck provides a panoramic view of the islands, bay, ocean, and the Miami, Key.

L'île la plus populaire du parc, offre aux visiteurs une variété d'équipements.
Il y a un terrain de camping avec tables de pique-nique et barbecues. Tables de pique-nique et barbecues supplémentaires sont situés sur le côté sud du port à proximité du pavillon en plein air. des toilettes à l'eau de mer sont disponibles, mais puisqu'il n'y a pas d'eau douce ou d'électricité sur l'île, il n'y a pas de puits ou de douches.
Un sentier de randonnée d'un demi-mile commence juste à l'est des toilettes. Le sentier continue vers l'extrémité sud de l'île, tourne vers le nord et arrive au pavillon et la zone de pique-nique.
Le point de mire de l'île, et le symbole de Biscayne National Park de facto, est le phare de 19,5 m construit par Mark ornementales Honeywell, l'un des anciens propriétaires de l'île, dans les années 1930. Le phare est ouvert par intermittence lorsque le personnel du parc ou des bénévoles sont sur l'île. La plate-forme d'observation offre une vue panoramique sur les îles, la baie, l'océan, et Miami.
