Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
The National Park Service (NPS) provides facilities including campsites, trails, and public docks on 13 of the island to help visitors enjoy these resources. Space is reserved at some docks for NPS vessels and excursion boats. Remaining space is available to the public on a first come, first served basis.

Gaylord Nelson Wilderness
Despite hundreds of years of human occupation, the Apostle Islands remain among the wildest places in the Great Lakes. The Gaylord Nelson Wilderness was established in 2004 to preserve the islands' natural conditions and outstanding opportunities for solitude or primitive and unconfined types of recreation. The wilderness comprises more than 80% of the lakeshore's land area, including most of the islands.
The Lake is the Boss
Nature dictates where and when travel is possible on Lake Superior. Weather conditions can change rapidly forcing boaters and paddlers to alter their plans. Keep an eye on the weather and monitor the marine weather forecast. Stay on the shore when the "boss" is angry.
The marker is located at Little Sand Bay Recreation Area and Campground, on the boat dock at Little Sand Bay Harbor, and is accessible from Little Sand Bay Road, Bayfield, Wisconsin 54814.

NOTE: Difficult to describe the exact location. Use the GPS coordinates and look at the Google Map to orient yourself before heading out.
