This huge over grown sandbar for an island is out in the Yumpa river, and gets its name for the all the plum bushes that grow out on it. A smorgasbord for any bear that makes the trip to the island. Many small vermin like raccoons and opossums swim the river waters to eat on these plums when they are ripe in the late summer/ early fall. They attract many equines also, to taste the sweet juicy plums. But they aren't the only ones to come to the island. Indians will swim over to the island to collect them for winter food stores for their tribes. Be careful.
