This tiny island is located to the north of Michigan Island, on the eastern side of the archipelago.
This is one of the most western-most islands in the National Lakeshore and is clearly visible from Little Sand Bay on the mainland.
This island has gone by a number of names including Kagagiwanjikag Miniss (Ojibwe for “Island of Hemlock Trees”), Texas Island, Hemlock Island and Shoe Island.
We would like to introduce a new, fun feature for you and your family. It’s a way for you to enjoy the amazing Apostle Islands National Lakeshore virtually… a way to see some of what the islands have to offer, from the perspective of someone who knows the National Lakeshore like the back of his hand.
