The Apostle Islands are made up of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, which is 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland, plus Madeline Island. Along windswept beaches and cliffs, visitors experience where water meets land and sky, culture meets culture, and past meets present.
Apostle Islands National Lakeshore has more lighthouses than any other National Park Service area with 8 historic towers on 6 islands. Visitors can hike, paddle, sail, or cruise to experience these Jewels of Lake Superior. Camping is available on 19 of the Lakeshore’s 21 islands and at one campsite on the mainland. The park offers hiking opportunities on the mainland, as well as many of the islands. The Mainland Lakeshore Trail extends 4.5 miles, from the Meyers Beach area, past the cliffs above the mainland sea caves. Hikers can enjoy more than fifty miles of maintained trails on 12 islands of the National Lakeshore. The Bayfield Visitor Center is a good place to begin your National Lakeshore visit, whether by car, afoot, or by private boat. At the visitor center you can view audiovisual programs and study exhibits about the park's history, natural history, and recreation opportunities.
Walk, bicycle or drive aboard the ferry to Madeline Island and explore La Pointe, voted one of the Coolest Small Towns in the US. With lodging, dining and shopping served up with a side of lakeshore views visitors will be on island time in no time. Mopeds and bikes are a great way to see the islands parks, beaches and hidden treasures.
