The Madeline Island Ferry Line will be pre-selling ferry tickets. We strongly encourage buying your tickets in advance. A pre-purchased ticket does not guarantee you a spot on a specific ferry, but it does let you skip the ticket line.
Stretch out before your swim and walk to Packet Pickup! Wild Rice Retreat is right on the beautiful Brownstone Trail, 1.5 miles from Bayfield. Pick up the Brownstone Trail on the southeast corner of downtown, off of 3rd St and Wilson Ave. Look for signs marking the short side trail to the Retreat.
If you're driving, Wild Rice Retreat is located just south of Bayfield. Turn towards the lake on Old San Rd and follow the signs and parking instructions.
