We stayed here about four years ago and it was owned by a rather grumpy fellow. The new owners are just wonderful. They have really spruced up the office and could not be more helpful. We were able to make the reservation over the phone and just loved this park. It is quiet and about 3 miles from Bayfield for easy access to the tours and places to eat and shop. We would love to stay here again. Some of the sites have the electric/water on one side and sewer on the other, but that was not a problem. Plenty of places to walk your dog. Very few tv channels and no wifi or laundry. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The farmers market on Saturdays is small but very nice. The Fat Radish Restaurant in Bayfield is very good. The little town of Washburn, which is about 10 miles away, has a nice bookstore and a great pizza place called DaLou's. Lake Superior Drifting jewelry is there if you like local stuff. Ashland is about 20 miles away and has a nice little quilt shop and Walmart. There is a golf course near the campground but they were the most unfriendly folks we have encountered lately.

A young couple, just took over this campground about 5 weeks ago. They are very helpful and are working hard at inproving all the little items and tasks that the previous owner left them with. This was already a nice campground and this ambitious young couple is working to make it a lot better. This is definitely our place to stay when ever we're in this area. All it lacks is paved interior roads. There is a problem with some dust control on the gravel roads, but the new owners have been working on the roads every day we've been here. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

They do have the new website and reservation system running. The reservation system is one of the best I've used. It will tell you what dates are available and for which sites. We stayed in #52. It's a pull thru on a hill above the office, like having your own yard outside your door. The new owners are super friendly, and our stay was great. The hook up's can be a little crazy, electric and water on door side and sewer on the other. That said one of the top 4 sites we've stayed in. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Small, but very nice campground. Very convenient to everything to see in Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, just about a mile into town, near u-pick berry farm and orchards. Nicely laid out with sites surrounding a large open playfield and playground--lots of area to set up games, etc. Some sites more level than others, but still able to level up with some blocks. Owner warns you about drainage ditches across the gravel road, just be sure to go heed his warning--drive slowly and pay attention and no problem. Owners very accommodating about moving to another site we liked better. Second time we've stayed here and will stay here on our next visit. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

Unlike another reviewer, I had no difficulty navigating the site in my 37' class A. It is hilly, but not a big deal. The campground is nice, quiet, and reasonably close to town. We enjoyed our stay here. We couldn't get Wi-Fi at our site, but Verizon service was OK. They did have new digital cable boxes that could be used for a $50 refundable deposit. We didn't try using it. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

A very nice campground with lots of trees. Very quiet and peaceful. Close to town and everything you want to do. There are a lot of rules posted, but we found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. We hope to come back here again - it was wonderful. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this to be a lovely park, and would certainly stay again. It's close to the pretty town of Bayfield, and a short drive to Red Cliff or Ashland. You can catch the ferry to Madeline Island, take a boat cruise around the islands, or a glass bottom boat tour: all from Bayfield. The campground was clean, well maintained, spacious, and quiet. Very nice. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our third time staying at this Campground. Again we found the place to be an excellent place to stay as we visited the surrounding sites. Each visit has been for a week or more and we plan on returning again next year. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There are wonderful hosts. This is a great campground, close to everything in Bayfield including the Apostle Islands, Madeline Island, and the orchards for berry picking. I was only going to stay a night but liked this campground and the hosts so much I decided to stay a few extra nights. The WiFi internet is great, got it with my laptop in my trailer and the electric and water worked great. The showers and bathrooms are nice and clean and the campground is very quiet and safe.

Several nice spots with views of the lake. Very well maintained. Seems a little pricy considering there is no pool or hot tub or extra amenities. We camped at Apostle Islands Area Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our visit immensely, and will return at first opportunity. We found Sam to be very friendly, extremely accommodating, and we enjoyed his humor. The campground is clean and well maintained and the sites are also very clean and maintained. We had a lovely, shady site. The campground is also convenient to all local attractions.

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.
