  1. Access the Isle Royale NP Group Fee form on www.paygov.

  3. Fill out the information in the online form:
    • Purchaser information
    • Permit fee ($25 per permit)
    • Requested itinerary for each permit needed
  4. Submit payment.
  5. After January 2, most likely in March, the park will contact you to confirm your requested itinerary or discuss any necessary changes.
  6. 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.
  7. Once an itinerary is approved, you will receive a permit confirmation email.
