Here is a sample itinerary for Stockton Island that can help you plan your trip when nature beckons you…
DAY 1 – Get me to Bayfield on time!!
Yes – unless you have your own private boat (which we didn’t)…you need to get to the loading dock in time before the ferry leaves. There is only one ferry that leaves for Stockton Island at 1pm everyday. The island itself has designated camp sites and group camp sites.Probably the most important asset of the campsite is a clear and unobstructive lake view with your own private beach
DAY 2 – Hike the trails – watch out for Bear-poop!
Stockton Island has the largest density of black bears anywhere in USA. There are said to be more than 30 bears on the island…but let that not deter your plans in anyway…because in the three days that we were there, we didn’t spot a single one.
DAY 3- Hike some more, build sand castles, take a dip, play Frisbee on the beach, whatever your heart desires…
The Apostle Islands is one place where you let the sun be your timepiece and the lapping of the waves, your pace to explore it. Enjoy it!
