The parking lot is located around the corner from the dock in a large grassy field. It can accommodate cars, buses, campers, RV’s and trailers.
Please feel free to drive down to the dock to unload passengers and luggage before leaving your vehicle in the parking lot. The walk back to the dock is about 5 minutes.
