Cedar Island Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Truly secluded and quieter than just about any other campground in the region, Cedar Island also has scenery that’s well worth the boat trip from the mainland. Sites are loosely arranged in two rows on the eastern half of the island with one restroom and a small picnic area. The closest boat launch is in the town of Chippewa Bay. To the west is Dark Island and its four-story, twenty-eight-room castle built in 1905 by Frederick Bourne that can be visited by private boat or harbor shuttle and toured for a fee from mid-May until Labor Day. Fish in Chippewa Bay include yellow perch, trout, walleye, bass, northern pike, and muskellunge. Seasonal waterfowl hunting (with a permit) is also allowed on Cedar Island."
