The Diamond Cove General Store, once the original blacksmith shop at Fort McKinley, is now home to the island store.
The General Store is the hub of the island and located just steps from the ferry dock and marina. It is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. Since no cars are allowed on Diamond Cove, the roads are safe for children to explore and ride bikes, which are often found slid into a bike rack at the General Store. The kids gather to scour the candy jars, order a pizza, and pick out their favorite scoop ice cream from the large flavor selection.
