My wife and I recently visited the town park for her birthday and given the pandemic, the park was the highlight of the island. The state park wasn't selling day passes only annual, so for a day non-resident visitor, it wasn't in our budget. The town park was perfect, we left a small donation. The water was super nice and calm and we enjoyed walking on the shore looking at rocks. We would go back to the town park and try to camp there.

On a whim, we decided to go camping for the weekend of Fourth of July. We called several campgrounds along the north shore but most of the campgrounds were already full. Thankfully, Rand at Big Bay Town Park offered to place us on a wait list....several hours later he called back to say that there was one available! Not only was the campground host friendly and helpful but the grounds and facilities were beautiful and well-kept! Bathrooms clean, quiet at nighttime, and safe-feeling! We loved that we could walk down to the beach right from the campground or take a quick 6 mile drive with our motorcycle to town for breakfast. Madeline Island is a gem with lots to do - you just have to look for it! Can’t wait to go back!

Drove here when we spent two days on Madeline island. It's a long drive and there wasn't anything to do there for it being October. If there was a lookout we didn't see any signs for it. Driving in it looks like a rustic campground.

We stayed at Big Bay Town Park the weekend of August 24 for my daughter's wedding which we had on the beach. The campground is very nice and the campground hosts went above and beyond to help us with some issues we had. The beach and the Lagoon are spectacular and we recommend star gazing from the beach at night. We will go back again probably in August because fly season is June - July.
