Isle Royale National Park
An Island of Nature
Things to do
Sometimes, visitors are on the trail when it is sundown. Where to sleep? There are lots of mini sleeping houses for visitors to spend the night in. There is no talking though because it may disturb the animals.
Visitors can always have a nice picnic by the seashore or at the visitor center.
You must carry your trash though, there are no trashcans at Isle Royale National Park. Visitors may also decide to bring a kayak to paddle by the island or just rent one from Rock Harbor Information Center.
Things to know
Please do not cut down trees. If you are caught by a ranger, you will get kicked out from the park.
Animals + Wildlife
When hiking, be sure to check the trees. You might find yourself staring at a Great Bald Eagle! Sometimes, you might notice small critters roaming the trail like squirrels, toads, rats, and spiders. Be sure to look at the bushes. You might find a red fox stalking you.
When you kayak, you might notice herring gulls flying through the dark blue sky. Also, you might find some beavers looking up at you in the water. Be sure to look at the shore too. You might be able to catch the scene of a moose eating leaves or a painted turtle sun bathing. Snap Back Turtles also roam the the park.
Locations to visit
There are two other places that are very high. You can climb to the the top of these two places though. One is Lookout Louise and the other is ojibway Lookout.
Visitors can also come to Rock House Lighthouse to look at old rooms and cabins.
