If this is covered somewhere else please just point me in the right direction. Two summers ago a friend and I did 8 days on Isle Royale. This late summer we planning on doing 12 days. Is it possible to somehow get a stash of food placed at Windigo? How late into the season are the visitor centers operating? Our plans could change but right now we are planning on leaving the island on the last ferry of the season.

According to the 2016 Greenstone (Park Newsletter), the Windigo store is open through 9/11. The last ferry out of Grand Portage is 10/6, so you'll just miss it. However, there might be someone who is closing the shop down who might hook you up. The people that run the store are very friendly.

Thanks for the input. Right now the plan is to get into Rock Harbor on the 19th via the Queen and hike the island (probably) clockwise using the Feldtmann and Minong and leave Rock Harbor on the 30th. Just didn't feel like carrying 12 days of food if I didn't have to.
