Along windswept beaches and cliffs, visitors experience where water meets land and sky, culture meets culture, and past meets present. The 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland host a unique blend of cultural and natural resources. Lighthouses shine over Lake Superior and the new wilderness areas. Visitors can hike, paddle, sail, or cruise to experience these Jewels of Lake Superior. The headquarters visitor center is one block off Wisconsin Route 13 in the city of Bayfield. During the summer, visitors may stop in at the Little Sand Bay Visitor Center.
