Bayfield is the type of small town travelers dream about – picturesque and charming with modern amenities and accommodations. The city is the gateway to the stunning Apostle Islands National Lakeshore - 22 gem-like coastal islands that are home to lighthouses, sea caves, hiking trails, camping, terrific blue-water sailing, and some of the best kayaking in the world. Summertime fills this Lake Superior port with sailboats, sea kayaks and charter fishing boats.
The Madeline Island Ferry crosses the bay on a 3-mile trip to Madeline Island, home to Big Bay State Park and the Madeline Island Historical Museum, located on the historic site of the former American Fur Company trading post. Bayfield takes pride in its quaint, harbor town atmosphere. Attractions include the Big Top Chautauqua tent shows, a heritage and maritime museum, eclectic retail shops, Victorian B&Bs, fine restaurants, bluff-top orchards, a pair of golf courses with spectacular views, and a burgeoning artisan community.
