We camped at Goose Island over Memorial Day weekend in 2013. Very large and nice park, the camp sites were pretty close together. The river was very high that spring, and all the river front sites were closed due to flooding. We attempted to kayak around the island, and enjoyed a good paddle downstream on the backside of the island, lots of wildlife, I think we followed their canoe trail. When we rounded the island to head back north in the main river channel, the current was too strong and we had to pull into the south boat landing and bum a ride back to the campground. We still had a good time.
