    Make sure you take protection for mosquitoes, flies, and other bugs. Long sleeves, long pants, and boots. Lots of stagnant water around, so be forewarned.

    Please note I only stayed on kabetogama lake. The smaller lakes in the park may be very different from my experience, but I want give give this as a warning to people who want to stay on kabetogama.I think this park is great for people driving motorboats around a lake, camping, and fishing. This is NOT a good park for people who enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and peace and quiet. I went there with my girlfriend this past weekend and canoed around the lake. The scenery is lovely and as two geologists we really appreciated some of the spectacular geologic history of this region. However, from just before sunrise until well after sunset all we could hear was motorboats. Several of the craft knew to give our canoe a wide breadth in the lake, but others sped past us dangerously close. If you are like us and want some quite, stay away from Kabetogama Lake (and maybe this entire park). Isle Royale is not far away and offers much more serenity.

    This is a beautiful place. You’ll be greeted with miles and miles of open water, interesting islands big and small, and awesome opportunities for lake-based recreation. I cannot stress how important it is to carry a good handheld GPS receiver, especially if you do a big tour of the lakes in your boat. Also bring detailed maps of the park. You could very easily get lost on the water. The numbered buoys are helpful, but they are no substitute for essential navigation devices. Especially once you get into the eastern areas, everything begins to look the same; the boating channels go on forever. Also make sure you carry enough gas. You don’t want to find yourself 25 miles from camp on an empty tank at nightfall. The mosquitoes will devour you. Like most national parks, you could probably be here a week and not see everything. It’s amazing how huge this place is. You’ll have a memorable time as long as you’re prepared. The earth, sky, and water here are simply spectacular. I cannot attest to the fishing, but it appears to be a great walleye spot.
