Beautiful and rustic island. MUST be willing to hike or mountain bike. Bring lots if water and even more bug spray. We went through 2 full cans and could have used another one. A face net helped a LOT!! Some very nice inner lakes, not for swimming in. The waterfall beach was a nice place to stop for lunch and on hot days a nice place for a swim in Superior if you have a suit. The locals are very friendly as well and the ferry captain was especially nice and helpful. Good place to do an overnight back packing trip as well.

Went on the island for the first time. Went over on the 9am ferry and came back on the 3:30pm. Rode up the east side trail, more views of the land on this side than the west side. Went all the way to the north light house and then a little further before cutting back to the center road. The trail is challenging, so you need to have some level of bike stamina. A wonderfully day.

Such a beautiful place in the fall! There were only 6 people staying overnight on the island. Spent 3 days here in one of the cabin rentals. A bit pricey, but plenty comfortable. Dog friendly. We did a lot of hiking and will be bringing bikes next time to be able to see more. Brought kayaks, but didn't use them due to water conditions. Figured it would be better to rent those next time rather than haul them. The ferry driver is awesome and friendly. Not much info is given online about staying here. You can do walk in camping (for certain sites) or reservation. The info boards once you get on the island give you more than any website.

I took the bus tour, with Simone as the guide. Now some will say the price is steep, but I thought it was fine. Only had 2 other people on the bus, so we were able to ask a ton of questions, and linger unrushed. Trust me you won't stump Simone on questions on the island, she knows the tree species, the people and building history, and guided us down a path that was good for the day we were there, The Thunder Trail, where the waves sweeping into small caves in the rock face cause it to boom. You also get access to buildings and with some walking see the highlights of the island. And she really guns it down the road. Bonus, not scripted, corny, heard it a thousand time jokes. Also in August we didn't get eaten alive by mosquitoes, Simone said June and July they are the worst. Remember the tour is Ferry Ticket, National Park Fee, and Tour Fee, so that is the cost. You have to call to reserve them.
