  • Beautiful place to visit and kayak. The goats were hilarious and very friendly. The island offers camping, boat launch, movie set to tour from Big Fish and best of all plenty of places to just stop and sit to enjoy the beauty of nature. There is also restroom facilities with a shower that were clean. We truly enjoyed our day kayaking around the island. We saw numerous huge fish jumping in the water, next time I'm bringing my fishing tackle. It is $5 per person entrance fee. Can't wait to visit again, this is truly a hidden gem that is well worth it.
  • So much fun. This is the leftover set from Big Fish (great movie). Great place to walk, look around, swing in the breeze. Place has a solid 50 goat population that will let you pet them. Bathrooms available, plenty of covered picnic areas. $5 per adult--- $3 per for kids
  • This place is absolutely incredible. It's absolutely gorgeous on its own but also holds the magic of the movie set of Big Fish. The owners, family and volunteers were all super friendly and accommodating. We loved meeting the goats and getting to soak up the nature while here. What a beautiful, magical place full of kind, incredible humans and animals!
  • Fave place to camp overnight in Alabama. Quiet, safe and clean. Nice bathrooms. Goats!!! And old movie set
  • Big Fish is a movie I would recommend. This is such a beautiful place. You can enjoy healing and walking with wonderful goats!!
