Get back to the simple pleasures in life at Lime Island’s cottages. Sit atop a bluff overlooking the St. Mary’s River and watch the large freighters pass. Head inland on the many trails that lace the Island. Enjoy fishing from shore or water and spend a day soaking up sun on the nearby beach. All this and more is offered to Lime Island Cottage and Camping Platform guests.
Lime Island Cottages have 2-3 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 8 individuals. Water and portable restrooms are conveniently located nearby. Each cottage has limited electrical capabilities and lighting produced by rooftop solar panels.
Guests should provide all basic necessities, including (but not limited to): a light source, first aid kit, cooking equipment, warm clothing, and sleeping bags. The cottages are barrier-free.
Tent camping is also available at Lime Island State Park. Wooden platforms located 400 feet from the docks are used as tent bases to reduce impacts on the surrounding environment. Additional platforms are located on the southeast side of the Island and are accessible by water or a 2.2 mile trail from the harbor. Non-platform camping is available up on the hill or on grass in a designated site.
Getting to the Island is Fun!
Visitors to the Island must charter or navigate a boat 3.0 miles across the St. Mary’s River. Vehicle parking is available inland at Raber. Use of a non-motorized boat to reach the island is NOT recommended.
