Visitors must have a state recreation passport on their vehicles to drive onto the island (pedestrians and bicycles can enter free of charge). Currently, there is no barrier to entry without a permit, so visitors could try to avoid the permit fee, but the Michigan State Police have a strong presence on the island and reportedly enforce the park's rules vigilantly. Recreation passports are available on the left just after crossing the MacArthur Bridge onto the island.
