Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is a U.S. national lakeshore consisting of 22 islands (Apostle Islands) and shoreline encompassing 69,372 acres on the northern tip of Wisconsin on the shore of Lake Superior. It is known for its collection of historic lighthouses (called "the nation's finest"), sandstone sea caves, a few old growth remnant forests, and natural animal habitats among many other things

The Apostle Islands are a result of the glaciers that once covered North America. “Geologically they are originally part of the main land at the edge of the great riff or fault which formed the depression to which the waters of Lake Superior collected.”  When the glaciers melted there was a lot of water left over that begin to shape the islands. Over time, the waves from the waters of Lake Superior caused erosion that formed the islands. It is widely assumed that Indian’s were the first to inhabit the islands. It is said that fur traders were the first explorers to settle. A village was built from the money that the fur traders brought in. United States Senator Gaylord Nelson sponsored the federal legislation that established the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

Bayfield is frequently associated with the Apostle Islands because of the close location to the lakeshore area. The town offers a variety of recreational activities and is very visitor friendly; the town becomes more popular during the summer months, when people are constantly coming and going to and from the islands. In Bayfield, visitors can locate "the headquarters and visitors center of the National Lakeshore, (which) can supply you with helpful materials to enhance your cruising among the islands.
