Bayfield Wisconsin Ice Caves are Open

 

 

According to information provided by some friends (and verified on the Web), the ice caves at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore are now open and accessible.

Park rangers have reportedly cored the ice between the caves and Meyers Beach, and have found the ice thick enough to accomodate tourist traffic.

The ice caves are awesome and beautiful!  You'll need a parking permit or 2009 seasonal pass in order to bring your vehicle into the Meyers Beach lot.  You can call the Visitor Center at (715) 779-3398 x399 to verify if the lot is open for parking and to obtain price information.

Bring a camera or two and dress warmly..it can be extremely cold this time of year in the Apostle Islands!  You'll have to walk approximately a mile across the frozen beach and lake ice to reach the Mawikwe caves. 

I guarantee it's worth the trip and the effort.

Sometimes I dream that I can simply go to places, and just enjoys all those wonders around the nation and the world.

But then the reality set... (LOL). I can't complain. Though can't follow the dreams

Eric, I do hope you have pictures of previous trips?  If not, a nice flip video of the ice caves is just

what I was thinking I would like for Valentines Day!  [It will warm up a little--they are telling us 50

degrees and rain by next week....can it be?]  Have you been ice fishing?
