There are a lot of exciting things to do and places to explore at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore! You can visit a lighthouse and see how kids spent their summers on an island. You could hang out on a beautiful sandy beach, or paddle a kayak into sandstone caves. Later on you could camp under the stars while black bears smell your footprints on the beach... Remember to always keep safety in mind, have fun, and tell your friends and family about the coolest time you had at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore!
