Wisconsin Point

At the extreme west end of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater sand spit (3.5 miles) in Wisconsin protects the city of Superior's harbor, forming sheltered Allouez Bay and the St. Louis River Estuary. The Point contains stands of old growth pine, beach dune communities and marsh open water habitats creating one of the best migratory bird areas in May and Sept at this intersection of marsh, lake and woodland.


As you enter Superior on Hwy. 2/53 turn east about 1.5 miles on Moccasin Mike Road, then northwest on Wisconsin Point Road. There are a number of parking areas in the 2.5-miles to the end of the point.
