A group campsite by night.
Making a Group Camping Reservation Request
Isle Royale will accept group camping reservation requests beginning January 3 for the 2023 season. Reservations received through this system October to January 2 will not be processed.
Isle Royale NP Group Fee form on www.paygov. Click on "Continue to Form" (button in lower right corner).
Fill out the information in the online form:
Permit fee ($25 per permit)
Requested itinerary for each permit needed
After January 2, most likely in March, the park will contact you to confirm your requested itinerary or discuss any necessary changes.
If your requested itinerary needs to be modified due to full sites, staff will work with you directly to find an itinerary that works for your group.
Once an itinerary is approved, you will receive a permit confirmation email.
When Do You Receive Your Permit?
Upon completion of the reservation request process, you will received an emailed itinerary confirmation. This is not your permit. You will receive your official permit upon arrival to Isle Royale at either Rock Harbor or Windigo.
Ranger III passengers receive their permit on board.
