Permits & Reservations
Isle Royale National Park offers an array of recreational activities, but some may require a permit or reservation.
A backcountry/camping permit is required for all who stay overnight in the campgrounds, at dock, or who anchor out.
The Rock Harbor Lodge complex, located on the northeast end of Isle Royale National Park, is the only full-service lodging facility on the island. There are two rustic camper cabins available for rent in Windigo on the southwest end of the island.
Advance reservations are required for groups of seven to ten individuals, including leaders.
Boaters can submit requests for campsites, anchorages, and dock space.
Cross-country camping is intended for those seeking a higher level of solitude, adventure, self-sufficiency, and low impact camping in a wilderness setting.
