As part of our 50th Anniversary celebration, we are collecting and sharing the stories of people connected to the islands, whether they are park guests, former residents or former park employees.

“Lakeshore Logbook,” is a collection of memories provided by former National Park Service employees.

Living and working in the park on a day to day basis, they’ve experienced a lot to be sure. We hope you enjoy their perspectives.

We’re archiving the Logbook entries here. Have fun paging through the logbook as we celebrate 50 years of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
