Overview

What Ellis Island was to the European immigrants, this island was to the Asian immigrants. Volunteer guides lead informative tours of the island's historical sites, including the Immigration Station and Fort McDowell. Graffiti left by immigrants who were awaiting admission or deportation can be seen on the walls of the holding areas. Hiking and biking trails circle the 740-acre (300-hectare) island and offer spectacular views of the Bay Area. You can even catch a glimpse of the indigenous deer population. Camping is allowed with proper permits. Ferry service varies according to the season.
