Little Sand Beach
Little Sand Beach is a small state park along the Lake Superior Shore, near the Apostle Islands, just north of Bayfield Wisconsin. This small park offers camping, a nice sandy beach, kayak launch, and a boat ramp onto Lake Superior. Sand Island is a mile or so paddle across Lake Superior.
The Beach, at Little Sand Beach, is pristine, quit and relaxing. As the name implies there is a lot of sand. About 20 yards from the lake there are grass reeds separating the beach from the woods. The swim beach is separated from the rest of the park by a natural tree line. This offers a little privacy and the feeling of seclusion.
The Harbor is well protected and offers transient boat parking for up to 3 days. The ramp fee is minimal at just $6 per use or $35 for the season.
Kayak landing, on the north side of the harbor is a designated part of the beach for kayak landing and launching. It too is a nice sandy beach, and offers some separation from the kayaks and the power boat landing area.
The park is ready for a family gathering. There is a nice play ground for the kids to play on near the beach. Several grills are located near the boat landing, and the play area, perfect for a family cookout. A medium sized shelter, located next to the play area will work well for small business or family gatherings.
Camping is available for both tent and RV/trailers. The camp grounds are neat and clean. Showers and restrooms are available for the campground. The camp ground is located about 100 yards from the beach and landing.
Also located at the park is the Hokenson Brothers Fishery. The house, dock, herring shed, and twine shed are still on the property.
Just north of Little Sand Beach lies the wreck of The Sevona, a carrier ship lost just off Sand Island. This ship lies in just 25 feet of water and is marked with seasonal buoys. This is a perfect spot for a dive adventure.
