    I can see it on a clear day but never been out there. Not really any different than the mainland. Pack lots of bug dope! Good boots are also a requisite. It's very rocky and anything that's not rock is usually muskeg. Check on the regs re sanitizing your fishing gear before you arrive. Also, make sure your tent and boots are clean before you get there. They don't need any more invasive weeds tracked into the park! I doubt you'll be able to bring in any live bait but if you bring a trap you MIGHT be able to trap your own minnows. Go on line or give them a call to see the score on that. Also, no firewood can be transported into the park but I doubt you'd be doing that anyway. Know what "leave no trace" camping is because they'll insist on it. The parks usually have small backpacking bear barrels you can sign out to keep your food secure. Not sure if they have a bear problem out there. As always give any cow moose with a calf a VERY wide birth. Don't mess around trying to take pictures. Get the heck out of dodge before she stomps you to death!
