The island is a wildlife protected area and has a fish hatchery on the island. Deer, eagles, heron, osprey, salmon and other wildlife may be seen depending on season and weather. The foundations of old buildings, built prior to Rocky Reach Dam, can be seen in the shallows on the east side of the island. Old Highway 2 ran close to the island on the East side. Before the new highway was constructed, there was no water between the island and the highway like there is today.
