We have three boats in our family party and dock at Pike's Bay Marina, which has wonderful facilities for the boats, and the showers, and breakroom and shop are all very nice. The staff is very...

This was a once in a lifetime visit for my wife and I and we almost missed it. I saw the pictures from last year and wanted to come up then (we live a 12 hour drive from Southern Illinois) and couldn't get the time. When I saw that they opened again this year on the 27th of February, and... More

Visited the ice caves from Meyers Beach 2014 and 2015. 2014 we felt the ice formations were more elaborate. Parking was very busy and could add a lot of mileage to the hike. Spent 4 hours snd hiked atound 6 miles. It's a mildly strenuous walk on slippery ice and uneven snow. It's a great way to enjoy nature sns... More

My visit to the ice caves on 2/27/15 was awesome. The sights were well worth the drive. Arrived early which was needed since so many other people were also visiting. The walk out on the ice was great. Very neat to see where the ice broke up and refroze. The ice caves were a beauty.

This is a beautiful spot looking over Lake Superior. Lots of small shops to visit always enjoy the trip here. I recommend this to anyone coming up here to Duluth. Stop at the Apostle Islands worth the trip.

I've visited Bayfield twice and done an Apostle Islands Cruise, along with driving around the mainland peninsula. Bayfield is a super cute little town--definitely one of the quaintest and prettiest I've seen in northern Wisconsin, Minnesota, or the UP. I found the islands themselves disappointing. They were pretty, but a lot flatter than I expected and with much fewer stone... More

We spent four days camping on Madeline Island. We love the charm of the island, and also love loading everything on to the ferry for the trip over! We ate at Maggie's in Bayfield, visited the casino which is new and beautiful, and walked the beach near Big Bay Park.

The apostle Islands are probably best seen by a narrated boat tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and knew so much about the area and the islands. It's about a 3 1/2 hour round trip and is pretty reasonably priced. Parking however can be a bit of a fiasco. Most of the street parking has a two hour time... More

The only thing that might be a negative about this entire area if that it might get ruined by fame. But if that doesn't happen - ENJOY!!! I lived in one of these lighthouses for a summer but I am not letting that fact sway my opinion of the region at all. HA
