WHITEFISH BAY II
N 47°03.457’ W 084°45.667’
Originally, when I found this spot exploring, four years ago, it was a little rougher and hadn’t been posted by the ministry. This year, camping allowed posted with an admonition about maintenance. A beautiful, and horridly rugged piece of Lake Superiors basalt shoreline, loose rocks and basins are everywhere to explore. I’ve been here watching the orange lichens blaze on a sunny day, and swarms of butterflies in a field. There is always someone there but there are numerous established campsites set off down the dirt trails. A dense foliage separates you from the highway as well. I’ve never seen it messy yet, although some people leave ropes and other accoutrements up. I hope that if you do stay over you do your part to help keep it that tidy, if not even better.
