Bayfield is small city of 530 on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin. It’s the gateway to the pristine beauty of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, with camping, kayaking, trails, sea caves, and beaches.
Madeline Island has long been a vacation destination as the only one of 22 Apostle Islands that is inhabited year-round, serviced by the Madeline Island Ferry Line. August is the ideal time to experience the beautiful scenery, clean air and water, friendly people and waiting adventures of the region.
