This is strictly what you make it. Camping. Picnic. Sit and watch the water go by. Swing. Feed the goats. Walk around the island. Visit the town of Spectre (from the movie Big Fish). Had a great day of enjoying the outdoors.

This privately owned island is opened to day trippers and campers. We came simply to see the movie set, but we really regret not coming with a picnic, enos, and even a kayak or some such. We could have spent the whole day fishing and...More

Oh my goodness! If you are a movie fan, I highly recommend visiting Jackson Lake Island! Definitely worth the road trip. We visited the island with my dog (leashed) and my 6 and 3 year old. The kiddos LOVED the goats. 🐐. It was great...More

We live nearby, so after discovering it a few years agi, we tell all our guests about it and often go back with them. Old movie set is fascinating, goats roam free & many want to be petted. Water around is beautiful, and great for...More

There is a road that takes you to the island. I had the same question as well. You can just drive onto the island
