Apostle Islands National Lakeshore exists as a coastal park at the northeastern tip of the Bayfield Peninsula, the northernmost mainland point in Wisconsin. It consists of 21 islands and a 12-mile mainland area and has significant historic, scenic, natural, and recreational resource.

We will be in paddle/camping groups of 5-6. The maximum number of participants will be determined based on number of team leaders and ability level of the paddlers.

We will plan to camp at Little Sand Bay Campground Friday and Saturday nights. We will plan to paddle to the Mainland Sea Caves on Saturday. On Sunday morning, we will set out for the islands for 6 nights of primitive camping. We will arrive back to Little Sand Bay Saturday morning and head for home.

The route that each group will take is determined by the Team Leader and is dependant on what campsites are available. 

Here is an island map if you want to check them out:

Required Equipment:  Sea kayaks with spray skirts, fore and aft bulkheads, full perimeter deck lines, pump/paddle float and safety equipment are required. You will have to carry your own camping gear, clothes, and food with you in your kayak.
