Description

Mott Island, Isle Royale National Park's summer headquarters, is the home of the summer headquarters of the park and the base for most operations on the island. A barrier island located on the south side of Rock Harbor Channel, a day hike on this island from Dollar Bay up and around the northern woods of the island makes for a scenic outing.
