At Big Bay Town Park

Board the ferry to Madeline Island in Wisconsin and be transported by the beauty of Lake Superior as you camp at Big Bay Town Park. Owned by the Town of La Pointe, the park provides views and entrance to the dazzling Big Bay Lagoon and the 1 ˝ mile beach shoreline of the Great Lake. The Town calls it "likely the most spectacular natural resource in Wisconsin with public access." Big Bay Town Park is located 7 miles from the La Pointe ferry landing. The park is open year around, with the only bathroom available being a privy from late October to mid May.

Madeline Island, the largest of the Apostle Islands, blossoms in the summer with the arrival of tourists. Bars, restaurants and shops beckon before or after an invigorating swim, hike or bike ride. Rent a kayak or canoe at Big Bay Town Park to really explore the waters. Apostle Islands National Lakeshore encompasses 21 islands, not including Madeline Island, perfect for activities like  fishing, hunting, hiking and scuba diving. The islands are noted for historic lighthouses, the largest collection in any National Park. Guided tours are given from mid-June to September.

Also available are six new remote, tent only campsites, along the Lagoon Ridge Trail. A new handicap accessible boardwalk to Big Bay Beach is in the works.
