Bayfield on Superior

Our home these last four nights has been Dalrymple City Park Campground just three-quarters of a mile north of downtown Bayfield, Wisconsin, right on Lake Superior. We arrived shortly after eleven on Sunday morning and successfully scored Site #14, one of the 25 electric sites just as the weekend crowd was departing. All sites here are First Come, First Choice. We’ve loved this spot, nestled into the woods at the end of a cul-de-sac. We noted that this campground was designed primarily for tents and small campers. We’ve had no problem but it’s been interesting to watch larger rigs come in late in the day and get themselves into tight turn-around situations then in frustration need to leave and head out for another campground. Hope they have a Plan B! As much as appreciating the opportunity to cruise around the Apostle Islands and to visit Madeline, we’ve enjoyed immersing ourselves in Bayfield. Our first evening we hiked to the Copper Trout in time to be there when they opened at 4:30PM then settled ourselves in for a outdoor concert down at the waterfront. We found seats on a retaining wall and settled in to listen. Song after song with a swing beat that has us wishing for a suitable dance floor. We’ve had great meals at Manypenny Bistro and The Pickled Herring, found some geocaches, visited the local museum, walked a portion of the Brownstone Trail, found a few treasures in the local gift shops, and just generally enjoyed fact that for four days Redford, our F-150 got his own little vacation. Every one of our adventures was on foot!
