Your #1 Planning Resource for the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore & Beyond

David & Lina Stock in the Apostle Islands WI


We’re David and Lina, born and raised Wisconsinites who love everything about Northern Wisconsin.

We’ve traveled to more than 100 countries and all 7 continents, yet we continue to call Northern Wisconsin home.

This website was born out of our love for Lake Superior, the Apostle Islands, those chilly Great Lakes beaches, and our love for outdoor adventures in our backyard!

Let’s Talk All Things Apostle Islands!

The Visit Apostle Islands Facebook Group is your hangout for travel advice and information. This is also a place where you can share your own tips, advice, and experiences with others. 


The Apostle Islands are located in Northern Wisconsin and are made up of 22 islands. The islands are part of the southeastern shoreline of Lake Superior and are located off the coast of the Bayfield Peninsula. 

Much of the peninsula coastline and 21 of the 22 Apostle Islands are protected by the National Park Service as part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Madeline Island, the largest of the Apostle Islands, is not part of the National Lakeshore but offers its own state parks and outdoor adventure options.
