Default Staying on Drummond Island

Planning on making a trip up to Drummond next week and was wondrering where is the best place to stay as far as:
-proximity to Turtle Ridge
-trail access
-price
-water access (fishing/kayaking)
-Jeep friendly

Could rent a cabin or tent, any feedback would be appreciated.
Also, are there any requirements to wheel on the Island legally? ORV sticker, street legal, etc...?
Thx.

Try Wa Wen Resort. I always stay there and the owners are great people and jeep friendly. Turtle ridge is just down the road and the are on the water and have boat rentals and what not.

We use Papin's. Nice cabins, just a minute or two down the road from Wa-wen.

I have stayed here the last couple of years. http://www.diyachthaven.com/cottages.../hhresort.html
They have cabins, and tent & rv sites. They are right on the water front, only a few minutes from turtle ridge.
The owners are very nice & helpful.

A cabin on the water at Drummond Island? That helps narrow it down.

straight throw the four corners pass the general store and bar. drive out Sheep Ranch rd, take your first right , drive till you hit the water camp sites all along there. the beach is great and the trails are better

Bear Tracks Inn, Steve Walker (owner) can tell you about all the trails on the island. His rooms are reasonably priced and his breakfast is awesome.
