    If you are on Woody Island for a camp or a retreat, you can expect to eat meals in the Mess hall. Here, you will find the choicest cuts of hungry man logger food! Of course all that fresh alaskan air will make anything you eat seem like the best thing ever!

    Feel free to wander around the island in your underwear on warm summer nights. The soft moss and wispering trees will guide you to secret spots that might vanish in the daylight. There are no bears or large predators, so you are safe. Be sure to wear mosquito repellant.

    There are no airflights TO Woody Island. You may ask a local of who might be willing to take you there and drop you off with their fishing boat/skiff. Local Guides might be able to arrange a kayaking trip, if you are willing to exert a little more muscle and $$.

    Before you leave Kodiak's boat harbor and sail to Woody Island, be sure to double check your packing supplies and pick up whatever you are short on. Kodiak is a modern American city with oodles of whatever you desire!

    Dance in the soft summer's last light, dusk anywhere but here. You can find sprites, soft wollen moss, dull green with time and polished waiting. The paths may be old, but they are new to you. Allow yourself to wander at night, after all- it's a small island and you are completely safe from any worry known to humans!

Woody Island What to Pack

    Luggage and bags: Luggage should be sturdy camping type.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Clothing should be watter repellant if possible, but with shorts for romps in the moss streams and hot black sand beaches. If the weather is misrable you shall be freezing cold and wish for many sweaters and thick fluffy socks.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring BLISTEX! Your lips will be chapped quickly from the robust fresh salt air. Fluffy toilet paper also is a luxury.

    Photo Equipment: Do bring a camera, the photos you capture will last a lifetime!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bring waterproof everything, this is a Pacific Rainforest!

    Miscellaneous: Food should be high calorie and high protien!

    Please be respectful of private property. If you see a NO TRESPASSING sign, that's precisely what it means. Please do not ignore it. Also, if you bring your dog with you to the island and you are near private property, please have your pet on leash as there are private landowners with very dog-aggressive dogs who live on the island. RESPECT other's privacy and they will respect yours. Thank you, a Woody Island landowner.
