Get Away to Relaxing Madeline Island

golfIf you’re looking for a unique vacation experience, Madeline Island Wisconsin has it all. From water sports-fishing, sailing, swimming, kayaking-to hiking, camping, or just sitting on the beach, this quiet island in Lake Superior will give you the peace and quiet you’ve been looking for. From the moment you drive onto the ferry, you know that this vacation will be different. You feel the stress slipping away as you make the two mile trip across the lake to the island. The Island is an easy drive from Chicago, Madison or Minneapolis, and the Madeline Island Chamber of Commerce can provide you with all the information you need to plan your trip. The island is only 42 square miles so come and explore the hiking trails and beaches; visit the state park and see ancient rock formations and wildlife viewing areas. Madeline Island is a great place to show your kids nature and wildlife as it was intended to be. All kinds of rental equipment are available on the Island. You can rent bikes and mopeds, canoes or stand up paddle boards by the hour or by the day. You can take a guided kayak or arrange for boat tour.  Boats are available for charter with captains and bare boat. Camping is certainly an option, but you can also rent a cabin or condo. And, of course, because the Island is small, you are never far from the water! So plan your vacation to this idyllic spot where summer temperatures are moderate and the air is clean and healthy.
