The beaches along the Town of Bayview's shoreline provide a clear view of Madeline Island and Chequamegon Bay.
Welcome to the Wooded Riverbanks of Bayview!
Leaving Washburn and traveling north to the City of Bayfield, you drive through gently rolling open fields with a mixed hardwood backdrop of pine and cedar forests. Within the first mile out of Washburn you can access the Houghton Falls State Natural Area. Designated in 2010, this magical land of gorges, waterfalls and green glens was sacred to the local Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
Two rivers, the Onion and the Souix, provide water access along this stretch of the Byway. You know you’ve arrived at "the big lake" as you drive through the Town of Bayview. This transition area brings you to the wooded shoreline of Lake Superior. Beach frontage runs parallel to the Byway for 1.5 miles at Bayview Beach.
