I'm an interested in coming to Bois Blanc to do some camping, Hiking, and kayaking. I've been to the island a few times while I was a kid but I never explored anything beyond sand bay and the main road. I'm Mainly here because I've got a bunch of questions about the island that I need answers to before I make any plans.

Is there a good place to get a detailed map?
where are there campsites on the island and what do I need to do to stay at them?
Are there any hiking trails on the Island?
Which Inland lakes are best for paddling?

Welcome Eric.. I'm sure your questions will be answered in many ways.. I'll try to give you some help.. A decent map can be found at Hawks and at the Tavern.. There are PRIMITIVE campsites on the north shore.. You will need a burn permit obtained at Hawks.. You will need to bring some type of vehicle to get around with your kayak and all the inland lakes are great for paddling.. Accessable as well.. Hiking trails are everywhere.. All the snowmobile/orv trails for sure.. Have fun and bring bug dope.. Very Happy
