A New Shoreline Tribal Park

Lake Superior Magazine

The 87 acres at Frog Bay in Wisconsin recently designated as a park offer views of five Apostle Islands, pristine sandy beaches at the top of Bayfield Peninsula and a rare opportunity for the public to visit tribally owned and protected lands.

Frog Bay Tribal National Park was created when the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa bought this prime Lake Superior frontage from David Johnson and his wife, Marjorie, of Madison, and hold and manage it in partnership with the Bayfield Regional Conservancy.
