TAKE ON THE BIG LAKE
The North Woods is a mecca for kayaking and calm-water paddling! With small lakes, placid rivers, and ponds, there’s an opportunity for even the newest kayaker to get their toes wet and explore Bayfield County’s many bodies of water.
In addition to the stunning beauty of the region, kayakers can also enjoy the abundant wildlife, such as otters, beavers, eagles, and loons that inhabit the area’s waterways. Many of the kayaking routes also offer opportunities for fishing, with northern pike, musky, and bass being popular catches in the area.
Please Note: While a general or recreational kayak is safe for small bodies of water, a sea kayak is necessary to navigate Lake Superior’s Chequamegon Bay, including the Apostle Islands. With small lakes, placid rivers, and ponds, there’s an opportunity for even the newest kayaker to get their toes wet and local sea caves. Lake Superior is an inland sea, with rough tides, unpredictable weather, and a treacherous history. For your safety please ensure you have appropriate gear and equipment before heading out.
