Raspberry Bay, Lake Superior

A popular anchorage in the heart of the Apostle Islands Region. Although the bay is relatively open, the surrounding islands provide good shelter and the anchorage is said to be tenable in most winds other than northerlies. Approach is straighforward and anchor in 8-10m anywhere around the edges of the bay to suit wind conditions. Good holding in sand. It is reported that there are some sunken logs in the corners of the bay dating back to the days when the area was extenisvely logged so if you wish to anchor close in a tripping line may be advisable.

No facilities ashore and no mobile phone signal but very quiet, peaceful and scenic. The anchorage lies inside an Indian Reservation and this should be borne in mind if venturing ashore in a dinghy.
