Great stay and nice campground! Sites were nice and roomy. The road is a few steep declines right as you come in, but we were able to navigate. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this campground. The owners really make you feel at home. Stopped here to see the Apostle Islands and feel in love with the area. Bayfield is one of friendliness towns we've been to. Lots of great restaurants and things to do. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

Very helpful owners/staff. Most sites are complete shade. Ours was mostly sunny so I could use satellite. Only a mile or so to town. The park is quite hilly. They are new owners (2018) and are upgrading - many sites are now 50A. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here 4th of July week and were very happy. Site was level, bathrooms very clean, and we used their new washing machine and dryer. The owners are very friendly and helpful...even offered to ship our surge protector that we left behind. The ice cream was delish. Yes, the road around the campground is a bit narrow and the first turn is a doozy, but otherwise, our site was great with good water pressure and electric. So convenient to Bayfield...5 minutes to the ferry to Madeline. We will definitely go back if we're in the area. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small park cut into the local hilly terrain. The gravel roads are narrow with tight turns. Most sites are not level. We needed blocks under the front tires and jacks to keep from going Excess Slope. There is one site (12) that is Big Rig capable. Otherwise anything over 32' is too long for majority of the sites. We are 43'. The park is quiet and dark at night. Electric is 20/30/50 amp and the water pressure and quality is very good. Location for touring the Apostle Island area is great too. Hence the costly night fee. FYI. They have a 5 hour checkin window, 1pm to 6 pm. According to their rules, check in after 6pm is an extra $50. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here about four years ago and it was owned by a rather grumpy fellow. The new owners are just wonderful. They have really spruced up the office and could not be more helpful. We were able to make the reservation over the phone and just loved this park. It is quiet and about 3 miles from Bayfield for easy access to the tours and places to eat and shop. We would love to stay here again. Some of the sites have the electric/water on one side and sewer on the other, but that was not a problem. Plenty of places to walk your dog. Very few tv channels and no wifi or laundry. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The farmers market on Saturdays is small but very nice. The Fat Radish Restaurant in Bayfield is very good. The little town of Washburn, which is about 10 miles away, has a nice bookstore and a great pizza place called DaLou's. Lake Superior Drifting jewelry is there if you like local stuff. Ashland is about 20 miles away and has a nice little quilt shop and Walmart. There is a golf course near the campground but they were the most unfriendly folks we have encountered lately.

A young couple, just took over this campground about 5 weeks ago. They are very helpful and are working hard at inproving all the little items and tasks that the previous owner left them with. This was already a nice campground and this ambitious young couple is working to make it a lot better. This is definitely our place to stay when ever we're in this area. All it lacks is paved interior roads. There is a problem with some dust control on the gravel roads, but the new owners have been working on the roads every day we've been here. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

They do have the new website and reservation system running. The reservation system is one of the best I've used. It will tell you what dates are available and for which sites. We stayed in #52. It's a pull thru on a hill above the office, like having your own yard outside your door. The new owners are super friendly, and our stay was great. The hook up's can be a little crazy, electric and water on door side and sewer on the other. That said one of the top 4 sites we've stayed in. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The website advises they will not reserve on the phone - you are to print and mail in a reservation request along with a check for full payment. Hard to do when you are in the road so I took a chance and called. The man that answered was very nice and said they were new owners and they did take reservations. Wish I had known before I tried 6 other places since I couldn't print their form. He said he would have to check and see if they had a space for me and get back to me. Since we were traveling with spotty cell coverage I called back an hour later and got a very nice lady and she said she just got the message and they did have room! She took my credit card and I was happy. We got here over an hour ago and have been trying to set up ever since. When we saw the spot they put us in, a pull thru even though my confirmation said back in, we knew it would be a problem. There are 2 huge trees behind the spot so the entire space leans to the road. We are not novices but for a Motorhome spot this is a challenge. My husband went up and asked if there was any way we could move to one of the 4 other sites nearby that are in flat ground and empty and was told those were all booked for the same time that we were here. But I guess because the office put us in the crappy site we are stuck even though we are here. This is not a great beginning to our Apostle Island trip. If you do have to stay here, don't let them put you in site 14. There is no map on their site so you can't tell anything, but ask. Oh, I just remembered! We are fortunate that there was a clean out for the sewer on the opposite side of our site as the one we supposed to use is uphill! And we all know that it doesn't roll uphill! We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is very beautiful, lush and green. Beautiful mature trees and very large green sites. It is near Bayfield WI which is a wonderful city on Lake Superior. When we checked in on last Friday night it was the new owners 1st day. They are delightful, young and excited about their new opportunity. I believe they will make this a 10 in the future. We have stayed twice and enjoyed our stay. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

You can catch a ferry to Madeline Island which we were visiting for the annual Inline Skate Marathon. Ashland WI is just 20 miles to the south and a great little city to visit with very friendly people. There are parks, water falls, and national forest everywhere.

This park is now for sale, which explains the lack of investment in making this park the best in Bayfield. So few options in the area and none above average. This is an older park, tight turns/campsites, hanging branches, 30 amp only, sites old gravel with some just dirt and gravel, many not level. Would not stay here again if possible. Would go to Legendary Resort & Casino Campground, at least was right on beautiful lake Superior, but nothing else to brag about for the campsites.
