Backpacker - - VIEW WITH A ROOM -

The ev­er­green-framed van­tage over Lake Su­pe­rior’s steely bay from this small shel­ter would put most any tent­door view to shame. The first-come, first­serve hut (sleeps six) is sit­u­ated on small Beaver Is­land in Wash­ing­ton Har­bor—mean­ing you need to kayak roughly .5 mile from the Windigo Ranger Sta­tion to get there. Rent a ca­noe from the Windigo Store (start­ing at $23) to se­cure par­adise. Trail­head Windigo Sea­son June through Septem­ber Ameni­ties Wooden plat­form (bring a pad) Reser­va­tion Free; first-come, first-serve Con­tact nps.gov/isro

The North­ern Lights pinch-hit for elec­tric­ity at this Wash­ing­ton Har­bor shel­ter.
