The view from the end of the dock of the islands to the north – Sand, York and the open Lake – is beautiful, if you are tall enough to look over the rocky storm barrier. Not so if you are under 5 feet or in a wheelchair. Thanks to a $5,000 private donation we are able to fund a handicap-accessible viewing platform that will be built by the park staff this fall. Little Sand Bay attracts campers, paddlers and day users. With the new visitor center that will be built this and next year, that area will see many more visitors, and to many it is their closest experience to the Apostle Islands.
