I found no restriction to hammock camping listed in the rules if the
cross country permits are granted. It would be good for LNT ethics of
"Campers must stay in established campground unless they make
arrangements for off trail hiking and camping when the camping permit
is issued. Off trail hiking and camping is difficult at Isle Royale
and recommended only for experienced campers."
I have often thought of going to the park. If you go, please let us
know what you learn on the trip.
I did learn that filtering/boiling the water is necessary. The
Wolf-Moose cycle encourages hydatid worm disease, which can infect
humans. My old standby of Polar Pure is not effective.
