The island is open year-round. The restrooms are closed for the winter season, usually October through April. During those months, you will find a portable toilet near the restroom. President Roosevelt was known for taking government officials and diplomats on hard hikes. Although not a very hard hike, here you can enjoy his legacy. Bird watching is great and the wildflowers are beautiful during spring and early summer. You may walk or jog through the trails. The surface is mostly flat with a boardwalk, concrete or surfaced with pea-sized gravel Canoeing or kayaking around the island is a popular activity. You may rent your craft at Georgetown or bring your own. Either way, be prepared to paddle on a busy and wide river.
