This beautiful, popular beach stretches nearly 10 miles across the mouth of the St. Louis River.  Unlike its counterpart Minnesota Point, the Wisconsin Point area is relatively undeveloped, making it an excellent area to see wildlife, spend a quiet day on the beach, go bird watching or hiking. Wisconsin point is also home to a Native American burial ground.

Wisconsin Point was named as the best strolling beach by Lake Superior Magazine in 2019.  While I do love a beach walk, I also love lighthouses!  And Wisconsin Point is home to the Superior Entry Lighthouse.  You can see the lighthouse from the beach as well as get a little closer view walking along the concrete barrier and rocky break wall.
