Re: Sea kayak

Have you considered Voyageurs NP as an alternative? It's open, no logistics, and plenty of water. I haven't been, but was supposed to be last week--decided not to do the road trip there and back from NC due to covid concerns. I paddled Voyageurs a few years back and it was indeed lovely. My only gr...

Re: Water treatment

I haven't heard of any new concerns about the water on the island, so I would think it's an abundance of caution. I think it (chemical treatment) was added maybe last year? I've never treated, just filtered.

Re: Private Boat/Chartering a boat

Not that I've ever heard of. They would have to be licensed by the park service to do business in the park (transporting paying passengers) and also be a licensed captain by the Coast Guard (to have paying passengers on a boat, anywhere).

Re: Siskiwit Bay may be noisy

They didn’t by chance say how long this construction will last? I have planned 2 nights there in September long done by then? Government work always scares me 😳 No, that's all they said. I would hope they'd have it done, but with location, weather and covid I wouldn't bet on anything. Personally I'...

Siskiwit Bay may be noisy

From the NPS website: "The Siskiwit Bay dock will be closed for replacement starting July 15. Expect heavy machinery, noise, and construction workers. Backpackers seeking solitude should consider an alternate campground."

Re: June 2020 First Timers w/Kids Itinerary #2

Agree about McCargoe and the mines. They're fun to explore and would be a great place to have a layover day. I'd suggest having Lane Cove at the end of the trip. It's the hardest hike (coming out), your packs will be the lightest, and you probably don't want to start the trip with it not sure of eve...

Re: June '11 Feldtman Loop

I've been told it's right behind the slag pile that is very obvious and right next to the trail. I missed it because it I didn't know it was right there as I was standing next to the pile, it was raining, and I was solo and had promised myself (and my wife) that I wouldn't leave the trail. If I had ...

Note that they say "We will coordinate the positioning of camp fuel to the island for our customers" near the end. I'm sure they'll work out the details (type of fuel, location) with you before you fly.

Re: Isle Royale National Park to Delay Park Opening for 2020 Season

I looked around and didn’t find any updates from May 1st. So.... we’re still in for the 15th. Fishing is now allowed in park waters during daylight hours, but no docking or stepping on land. Only change I recognized. Previously it was a more ambiguous statement, saying no fishing in the park but La...

Re: Voyaguer & Sea Hunter Schedule 2020

That is correct. It takes 2 days to go out, circle the island, and come back, overnighting in RH.

Re: New Windigo Store

Unfortunately the old building is falling apart. Definitely will be a different vibe down by the water.
