Traveling here guests can can enjoy fishing for Lake Trout and monster Walleye, kayaking and boat rides along the rocky shorelines, hiking any number of trails, sleep under the stars, learn to sail, visit Madeline Island and Tom's Burnt Down Bar,  touring any number of the lighthouses, rock jumping off monolithic sea caves and rock formations, stop into Port of Bayfield for an evening stroll and ice cream cone, and rejuvenating swims in the clear, clean waters of Lake Superior.
