One of my favorite places in the Salem area. It is about $10 per car (free to residents) they will stop you at the front gates. They do offer camping and RVing on the island as well. The entrances to the fort under the certain portions of the island are locked and have been for as long as I can remember so just be aware of that as well. The only real downside to this area is the power plant that is right next to the island. Overall its a great place to spend a beach day.

A great place to stay when camping in the Salem area. I'd recommend the Safari field because the other sites are in a busy parking lot for the boat ramp. The bathrooms were terrible. The beach is good and the location of the park is excellent.

This was a really cute and quaint park to stop by in Salem! Quick to get to and easy to get up close to the lighthouse and walk around. Beautiful scene!
