Overall Experience
We didn't stay here, but drove over for a look. Here's what we learned at the gate. First admission to Indian Island is very controlled, but if you arrive between 8-5 on M-F and you have a DOD sticker, you can go through without any hassle. You have to go through the inspection of course, but it only takes about 5-10 minutes. The guards were very professional and courteous. On a weekend, the situation is very different, so try and arrive during the week. You must get a Recreation Pass ($40 a year) from the gym folks and after that, entry/re-entry is much easier regardless of day. The campground has 5 sites right on a small bluff (10' or so high) overlooking the water. They are next to a large recreation area with covered picnic tables and water access. W/E, with a dump station located in the main compound about 2 miles away. Indian Island is known for it's crabbing, clamming and sea run trout fishing. There is a small county park across from the main gate used by the locals, but you have access to a lot more beach on base. You have to notify the guards if you are going down to the crabbing beach, but it's going to be worth the hassle if they are in season. The crab/clam beach is on the opposite side of the island from the campground. We will be heading there to camp next summer when we are back in the area.
