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. Recreational opportunities include: 229 acres, with 2 3/4 miles of beach; Bird watching, hiking, beach use, and duck hunting; Watchable Wildlife area; Historical marker for a sacred Chippewa burial ground; and the Superior entry lighthouse. 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. Motor vehicle traffic is prohibited between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. on Wisconsin Point Road, including any parking areas beyond Lot #1 and also all of Moccasin Mike Road & Lakeshore Drive.
