  • 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.
  • Stockton island was beautiful. Definitely want to try camping here some time
  • Definitely has worthwhile things to do. My only issue with the place as a whole was how difficult it is to rent a kayak. First, you have to pay for and then take a 3 hour safety course then actually rent the kayak. In all honesty I could probably enroll and finish with medschool in less time and spend less money. Also, there are not a lot of places to go mountain biking. However, the scenery is exquisite and you will not be bored if you decide to spend a weekend here.
