    Beautiful. Best views are from a Kayak Sea Cave tour. There are several operators that offer similar tours. Avoid the big boat tour -- See my review there.  more »

    We saw shipwrecks and caves. We saw most of the islands and the narrator had interesting stories about the inhabitants.  more »

    This was nothing short of amazing to kayak through. Highly recommend booking a guided tour of the caves by kayak through Trek and Trail!  more »

    We took a challenging 3.5 or 4 mile hike from the Meyers Beach parking lot with 3 and 5 year old kids to the sea caves. Beautiful trail with lots of board walks, stairs, and steep, muddy hills. Definitely not stroller friendly. Plenty of parking for large vehicle along the road.

    One of my favorite places on earth. You can spend the entire summer hopping around the islands and wandering the trails, camping, taking pictures, picking wild berries, fishing...and napping to the sounds of the waves on the beach. Lots of wildlife, great park staff, clean.

    Beautiful place. Had a picnic on a huge rock on lake Superior. This place is a must visit.

    When people ask me the most amazing place I've ever been, I tell them about the Apostle Islands. I canoed and camped here for several days a few years ago. Lake superior is a beautiful and wicked beast. Our last 24 hours downpoured nonstop. We had to canoe through giant white caps to get back to the mainland. It was scariest and also the most amazing thing I've ever been through. The camp sites are beautiful and many of them are remote. On more than one occasion we had a private beach to ourselves for a whole day. We went in the fall and were able to feast on berries every day. Cannot wait to go back someday.
