Isle Royale Backpacking



Isle Royale National Park provides a great opportunity for your troop or crew. Connect to the wilderness through adventure, discovery, and exploration.  Your journey begins while crossing a substantial portion of Lake Superior’s northwest section. Once there, you will find a living laboratory, a rugged Northwood’s wilderness, and a road-less back country of wild creatures, second growth forests, refreshing lakes, and rugged scenic shores. Moose and wolves are commonly seen on the island.  Even though this island gem has the highest back country overnight use per acre of any national park, you will still have the sense of more privacy than anywhere else.  Contact our trek staff as soon as possible to plan this one of a kind hiking experience.

Age Requirements:  All youth must be at least 13 years old, or at least 12 years old AND completed grade 7.  Anyone 21 years old before the conclusion of the trek must register as an adult.

Group Size Limit: Up to 10 people:  At least one adult leader from your unit, the guide, and up to 8 scouts (up to 9 from your unit).  Fees also covers transportation between Copper Harbor and the park.
