Escape from the city life and enjoy the quiet surroundings on this island in Lake Michigan.

This secluded state park is great for tent campers. They offer 40 primitive walk-in campsites, and each of them have a picnic table and fire ring. Popular recreational activities include hiking, canoeing, and kayaking. Enjoy several miles of hiking trails, including the Algonquin nature trail and Thordarson loop trail. Be aware that the waters are quite cold during May and June, which poses an increased risk of hypothermia. At the beginning of July, visitors with a valid fishing license can bring their bait and gear to fish on the lake. The most common fish that are caught are smallmouth bass and gobies. 

Featuring sights like Pottawatomie Lighthouse, this state park is a wonderful place to visit. Tours of the lighthouse are available daily (Memorial Day through Columbus Day) from 10 am to 4 pm. Rock Island State Park is located in northeastern Wisconsin. No vehicles are allowed on the island, and visitors need to take a ferry to get to Rock Island State Park. It is open year-round from 6 am to 11 pm; however, the ferry does not travel to the island when ice is present on the lake.
