Apostle Islands, Wisconsin

Driving along the coast of Lake Superior reminds me of home, going up to my family trailer as a child in Miller Lake, Ontario.  The Grey Bruce rocks and cold lake water give me that nostalgic feeling as we drive around.  We needed to do some RV work, still setting up along the journey so, we decided to venture out later in the afternoon for a hike near our campsite and save on the driving.

Our family celebrated Canada Day here in Wisconsin too and had some fun putting up a few of our Canada Day decorations!

Where we stayed

We stayed at Southshore Campground in Cornucopia Wisconsin.  I think this may be the smallest campground we have stayed at so far, only 8 pull thru-sites and a few camping sites.  It is self serviced with a dumping station on the way out.  It was a quiet campground with spacious sites and trees for a bit of privacy, no Wi-Fi though but we had good service through our AT&T lines.

What we did

We ventured out to the Lakeshore trail to see the sea caves in Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.  The trail itself it 5 miles long one way, we went out about 2 miles to see the sea caves before turning around.  It is a challenging and fun hike, starts with a boardwalk and then transitions into more rugged terrain.  It has spectacular views of the sea caves and the turquoise waters of Lake Superior.  When we finished, we gave ourselves high fives for getting back into longer hikes!

What we missed

We would have loved to have gone to Madeline Island and see Big Bay State Park.  There is a ferry that will transport cars as well over to the island, so you can explore.  The reviews looked fantastic!

Other Events

In Cornucopia they have a few small shops, we stopped at Halverson Fisheries for some smoked Whitefish caught locally, so good!
