Bay
“The name is deceiving - although it used to be all sandy, the last few years of very high water levels in Lake Superior has pulled all the sand elsewhere. After a walk down 80 steps, you can relax on the rocks and watch the kids swim or practice your skipping skills with the rocks. It is a perfect places to spend a summer afternoon.”
