B. PUBLIC LIABILITY. The permittee shall purchase and maintain during the term of this permit Comprehensive General Liability insurance against claims occasioned by actions or omissions of the permittee in carrying out the activities and operations authorized hereunder. Such insurance shall be in the amount commensurate with the degree of risk and the scope and size of such activities authorized herein.
The permittee shall carry, at a minimum, the following coverage:

Type Of Coverage


  • Comprehensive General* - $500,000 aggregate, $300,000 each incident or $100,000 for each passenger carried (whichever the greater)

Protection & Indemnity

  • Excessive Liability - $500,000 (Umbrella forms or other than Umbrella)
  • Worker's Compensation - Statutory Worker's Compensation and employees' liability as required in the State(s) of operation

All liability policies are to specify that the insurance company shall have no right to subrogation against the United States or its employees and have no recourse against the Government for payment of any premiums or assessments OR the National Park Service, Isle Royale National Park, must be specifically identified on the policy as an additional insured. This requirement is not met by merely naming the National Park Service as a "Certificate Holder" on the policy.
