Bayfield, Wisconsin RV Parks
Situated along the shores of Lake Superior, Bayfield is the Gateway to Madeline Island and the Apostle Islands, a national park that comprises the northern-most point in Wisconsin. It is an active arts community that boasts a historic downtown with boutiques, local restaurants and a marina. Orchards and berry farms are plentiful in the area; Bayfield's annual Apple Festival draws over 60,000 people to this small lake town. Sea-kayaking and fishing in Lake Superior's glacial waters, and hiking and biking in the surrounding dense forest make this a destination for recreation enthusiasts.
