Wherever you are, life is surely different this spring. That is true on Madeline Island, too. Madeline Island is slowly getting back to normal! Businesses are preparing to open, with many safety precautions in place, so you feel comfortable visiting us! The State and Town park are accepting reservations for camping on June 1st , and are open.
Today, the snow has melted, the waves are crashing, the grass greening, and nearby Big Bay State Park is alive with new awakenings as we welcome spring. But we miss the faces of happy vacationers, running kids, and busy employees. We look so forward to seeing everyone on the island again when it is safe for you to do so!
We want to say hello and share a glimpse of what awaits! Anticipation is the greatest joy. So, we will keep inspiring you to dream about your next Madeline Island getaway. Join us on Facebook and Instagram where we’ll share memories and dream together. Be sure to check out our webcam here, and take a break for just 60 seconds, and watch this video here. Pause all the craziness for a minute, take a deep breath and let the sights and sounds of Madeline Island wash over you, and never miss a wave!
Chamber staff are here to answer phone calls and respond to emails, and will begin office hours May 26th, 2020. Please call 715-747-2801 or email [email protected] with questions or concerns.
