Experience Chequamegon Bay
The Chequamegon Bay area offers a truly unique Wisconsin experience. Right here on the South Shore of the largest freshwater lake in the world, you can go kayaking in caves, tour islands, hike and bike over amazing vistas, visit Wisconsin’s highest waterfalls, go sailing, go fishing, tour fruit orchards, explore art galleries, and so much more.
The Pier Plaza family and staff is ready to help you enjoy your stay and discover what the bay area is all about.
Aside from being the home of Pier Plaza, Bayfield is located on the shore of Lake Superior and is the gateway to the 22 Apostle Islands. The city is a hub for visitors who want to explore the natural beauty of the region, experience arts and culture, and indulge in the bounty of local fruits and berries.
Madeline Island is the largest of the Apostle Islands. Stroll the sandy beaches and relax to the rhythm of waves rolling in. Immerse yourself in history. Savor beautifully prepared local fare, served up with a side of lakeshore views. Shop the galleries and cultivate your artistic spirit. Hike, bike, kayak, swim, canoe, golf, shop, and dine.
The Red Cliff Reservation offers visitors a variety of unique sites and experiences, including the Legendary Waters Resort & Casino, two Campgrounds (Buffalo Bay & Point De Tour), Marina, miles of hiking trails (Frog Bay Tribal National Park & Clayton Creek), fishing, biking, snowshoeing in the winter months and much more!
Alluring beaches, inspiring sunrises, limitless night sky, and that’s just the beginning! Enjoy the walking trail for birding and more that connects the two lakeside campgrounds. Washburn offers phenomenal sport fishing whether it be by boat, from shore, or on the ice. And Chequamegon Bay is the perfect place to put paddle to water.
The City of Ashland offers historic charm and modern convenience. Shop downtown in extraordinary turn-of-the-century brownstone buildings with vibrant murals. Some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the entire state are in Ashland County at Copper Falls State Park. Ashland is also home to a full-service 121-slip marina.
