Rock Harbor rotavirus warning

Not sure which topic I should post this under, or if the admin wants to repost it somewhere else. Saw this alert on the Isle Royale National Park website, https://www.nps.gov/isro/planyourvisit/conditions.htm Wash your hands and use sanitizer! We are headed to the island through Rock Harbor in a wee...

1/2 day canoe use and bag storage

Just FYI, myself and family of four are renting a housekeeping cottage our first and last day of our trip in early August. I just got off the phone with the lodge and she told me that the use of one canoe for a half day was included with the cottage rental. Also asked about checking a bag for storag...

Re: Chippewa Harbor or Moskey Basin

There are five in our group, so we’ll keep an open mind. I was mostly concerned with making changes with the water taxi for a different drop off point. I’m not going to change anything and play it by ear. If the weather is bad maybe we try to get a shelter at Moskey. If it’s nice and the skeeters ar...

Re: Chippewa Harbor or Moskey Basin

Well, not the answer I was looking for, but probably the one I needed :lol: I really wanted us to experience a few nights at an inland campsite, for the quiet and solitude. We will be staying at West Chickenbone our third night, so I guess that will suffice. Then we’ll be at McCargo for our last two...

Chippewa Harbor or Moskey Basin

So we have all our hotel and boat reservations made for our first trip to the island in early August. We will be taking a water taxi from Rock Harbor to Chippewa Harbor and camping across the island to McCargo cove over the next few days. My question is, would you rather stay at Chippewa harbor or M...

Re: Asking for plan “B” advice

Thanks everyone for the suggestions and info. I like the idea of having a “buffer day” so I’m thinking we will plan on taking the Queen to Rock Harbor a day earlier, and reserve a ride on the water taxi to Chippewa Harbor the next day. That way if we are delayed a day, we can still take the taxi to ...

Re: Asking for plan “B” advice

Thanks for all the suggestions! Ingo, I did look at the water taxi option, it’s only another $50 for the two trips. My questions with that are do they run every day, and will they get us to our destination if we are a day behind? Dcclark, my wife came across your blog from your last trip and that’s ...

Asking for plan “B” advice

First of all, thank you to everybody who posts on this forum. My wife, three kids and I are planning our first trip to The Island in early August and this forum has been a wealth of information! Our “A” plan is to take the ferry from Copper Harbor to Rock harbor, then catch the Voyager the next day ...
