Twenty-one islands sprinkled along the shores of the majestic Lake Superior like sparkling jewels, supreme solitude, abundant hiking opportunities, and a lake that stretches on forever. There’s so much to love about Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Primitive campsites are available on 18 of the park’s islands, or if you’re a true landlubber, you can make your home on the mainland. Either way, you’ll be treated to incredible scenery, towering lighthouses, thickly wooded forests, and maybe even a few history lessons. There’s no place like the islands for relaxation and adventure.
