Surrounded by Lake Superior and situated far away to the southeast of Thunder Bay, Isle Royale National Park is perfect for remote adventures and quiet reflection. This 207 sq. mile national park in Michigan features more than 400 small islands and sits on the largest natural island in Lake Superior.
Accessible by boats and seaplane, Isle Royale National Park offers loads of recreational opportunities for visitors and campers ranging from boating activities to canoeing and kayaking on the park’s waters. Day hiking opportunities are also available in the park for campers and visitors who love to stretch their legs. Moreover, with more than 40 documented fish species in Lake Superior and inland lakes in the park, anglers always have something to catch when they fish in the park. Bird watching is also a popular activity here.
Experienced scuba divers will find shipwrecks in the cold waters of Lake Superior, enjoy opportunities to explore these cultural resources and take photographs too. Guided tours and children’s programs are also offered at Isle Royale National Park.
There are no RV campsites and facilities at the park. 36 walk-in campgrounds are, however, available.
