Be Prepared With----
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a raincoat and a medium to warm jacket a well as your summer clothing, you never can tell what might be needed. If you are going to Isle Royal, purchase all your needs before leaving the mainland, as there is only one tiny general store in the national park at Rock Harbor.
Photo Equipment: This depends on where you go, and what your purpose of photography is. If you were making the trek to Isle Royal, a telephoto or zoom lens would be an asset. In Isle Royal you might get lucky, you might see a moose, and you shouldn’t get too close, these animals can run you down faster than you can imagine. Get that photo the safe way. A polorizer filter is important if you want to get photos with the water as all or part of the subject.
Miscellaneous: Insect repellent is highly recommended.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: October through May -- expect snow, bring a WARM jacket. Unless you're as crazy as my friends say I am, don't expect to jump into Lake Superior without a struggle unless it's August or September.
Photo Equipment: Bring a camera, as scenic photo opportunities abound!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bug spray is a necessity during the summer months. The bugs may be small, but they can bite! Build a fire and stay close.
Miscellaneous: "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it'll change."
- Hiking and Walking
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a jacket, even in the summer... it is COLD in the U.P. When I got back to Baton Rouge, my Mom laughed at me when I told her to wait while I got my jacket as we were headed out the door. It was August.
