Isle Royale, Mich.
Welcome to the least visited National Park in America. If you truly want to get off the grid and escape to the wilds, this is your island. Located near the western edge of Lake Superior, Isle Royale is only accessible by boat or float plane. The year-round natives are the predatory Grey Wolf and the North American Moose – a.k.a. wolf chow. Aside from those, it’s just you and a forest of trees, shimmering dark blue water and the occasional flock of migrating sea birds. Most people opt to camp on Isle Royale, to make full use of the 160 miles of hiking trails. There’s an outfitter to rent boats, from motor to kayak, and for those less into “roughing” and more into pampering, there is a single lodge with accommodations.
HINT: Best song to download before heading to Isle Royale? “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel.
