Spacious sites. Full hook-up available with cable. No laundry or internet. They don't take credit cards, so they are kind of picky about taking reservations. We were coming through for one night and called to see about availability. She said they had a spot and how soon could we come. Well - we were still in Minnesota at the time and weren't expecting to arrive until late afternoon. She made me promise that I was really coming before she would take my reservation. She was friendly about it, but I would say this seemed strange to me. We would stay there again, however. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is not very nice. Very old and rustic. Sites are cut out of a field and not level. Many set up for very small units and tents. Many sites are hard to back in. Most sites do have lots of shade tree. Cash and checks only. Some cell phone reception. Overpriced for what we got. Nice owners. Sewer could not be hooked up at it was at the rear of the rig. Water and electrical is also in the rear and 10 ft away from the rig. Had to use extension on water and electrical. Simply not laid out properly. We looked at other parks and there isn't anything any nicer in this area: sad. We won't stay again. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. We arrived without reservations, and although the park was almost full, we were assigned a site with a view of Lake Superior. Our schedule allowed us to stay only 1 night. Wish we could have stayed longer. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent one night here and were rather disappointed. We had checked the reviews on this place so thought we would get more for our money! Well, that did not happen. We paid for the full hook ups (they are the only park in the area with full hookups). Their so called 'lake view sites' are an additional $8 per night! Maybe 3-4 sites. And there isn't much of a view at that. The spaces are ok, level and offer some privacy in some. The office does not open until after 9 am and closed promptly at 6 pm. We told that very sternly up on our arrival (we arrived a little before 9 am) You are not allowed to put out a mat of any sort and should you have visitors, they have to pay $3 each!!!! The restroom were very cool! The toilet areas are exposed to the wind and cold with only a metal roof. The showers do have outside doors and were very clean, but cost $1 for 5 min. & .25 per each additional minute. The owner was less than friendly and stern about the rules ("Make sure your Read and obey all the rules"). I really think this place is over priced. It is over a mile from Bayfield and there is nothing much to do here. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

Cute, privately owned campground up near the Apostle Islands. Center area with playground and bathhouse. Bathrooms are basic, and from the playground you can see the feet in the woman’s stalls. Town has lots to do, shopping, restaurants, a lot of orchards and berry farms where you pick your own blueberries and other goodies, a ferry to Madeline Island and boat trips around the Apostle Islands. Their reservation system needs improvement. You call and they mail you a reservation form which you fill out and mail back with a check. They do not send back confirmation letters or call to let you know you got a spot, and ask that you not to call to find out. After an 8 + hour drive we got there and found they had our reservations down for the wrong dates and were full. The owner did fix things by re-arranging a few tenting sites that had no shows and found a spot for us, but it made for a tense few moments. We would stay here again but would call to confirm before leaving. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

I agree with the comment below, that they need to work on their reservation process. However, overall we were happy with our visit here. The staff was friendly when we checked in, the campground was in good condition and the electricity and cable worked well. Overall the campground was quiet and wooded. Bathrooms needed some modernanization, but at least were clean. I will stay here again on our next trip up to Bayfield. Thank you for a nice visit. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park was easy to find. The site assigned to us was too small for our rig. The next site had no water unless you had very long hose as the neighboring site had two faucets. When we asked the owner about it he said that everyone should have a 75 foot water hose and an electric extension cord. The bathrooms were mediocre. The owner had lots of petty rules, such as no mats on ground, even on gravel. I would not stay here again. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

What a great stay we had in Bayfield at AIA Campground!! Our first impression of the campground was very positive, as the grounds are very well kept. The hosts were most accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. Our firewood was delivered to us, and this place has the best ice ever! The bathrooms had flush toilets and were very nice. The showers were hot and squeaky clean and well worth the few quarters it took to wash up! The campground was very quiet and we had the best sleep that we have had in a long time while out on the road. Bayfield itself is a quaint non-commercialized city with lots of things to do, there are many fun shops and really good food. A great time was had by the whole family. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a very nice campground however the sites are a little tight. Restrooms were clean but very cool in October due to open air construction. Some sites in upper part of the campground had a view of the Apostle Islands. This was a great place to stay while touring in the Apostle Island area. We would stay here again. It is a beautiful area with much to see. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
