Just after the 4th of July of 2017 I went to Isle Royale National Park. I took an inner city group of kids out of Kalamazoo, MI. I was Hired on by the nature center in Kalamazoo to run this trip. It was a great group of kids that I took up. None of them had ever had a Pastie before. Which shocked me as being from Michigan that they had never had one or even heard of them. So I took them to get one a Pastie while at Tahquamenon Fall. If you ever look them up make sure to look up Pastie food, or google will show you some NSFW photos haha. We got to our camp ground in Handcock, MI and it was a horrible place. Just go to the State Park up the road from it. It's a lot cheaper. The next morning we took the ferry boat from Houghton, MI to Isle Royale. It's about a 5 hour trip and it takes you to Rock Harbor, the northern part of the island. It's absolutely beautiful! If you want to take a ferry to the southern part you need to leave from Wisconsin. Our first day we hiked a couple of miles to the Daisy Farm camp ground. A bunch of nice wooden shelters had been built by the park service. It even had a mest netting to keep the mosquitoes and animals out. The only down side is that it was raining. It didn't stop raining for 3 days...it was horrible. Everything was soaked, the kids were soaked, EVERYTHING was wet. The last full day is when it stopped raining enough for us to dry out our gear. But it still wasn't enough to dry out everything. We even brought gear with us to keep things dry and it wasn't enough. The point where we got wet was at Chicken Bone East group site. It's in a slight bowl that you can't notice until it fills with water. So, there I was, in my underwear, digging a trench to get the water out of tents and off our gear. Even the tarp I put up wasn't enough to stop everything from getting soaked. The last full day on the Island was nice and warm. I went down to Lake Superior and took a nice bath to clean up and clean my clothes as well. I don't care if the kids smelled funny, but I wasn't going to smell weird. Pro tip: the washer and dryer at the docks cost a lot of money! The trails along the lake shore are usually mud. You don't have much of a chance to see a Moose. The lake shore campsites have shelters! The inland camp sites to not. And only a few sites have fire pits. Make sure that the water sources are worthy of filtering water. Some of them are not worthy of filtering or even boiling. So check with the park service. Water purifying tablets are a waste of time, just get a good filter.
