Reviews for Black River - U.S. National Forest
Beautiful and Scenic Harbor, 2017-05-31
Captain: , Bayfield, WI (340)

We entered the harbor in May of 2017. We were warned about shoaling at the harbor entrance, and were told to hug the west breakwall. We didn't hug it enough as we grounded (with 6' draft). Do not use the green can as a marker or you will be high an dry. Leaving, however, we saw another boat leave. You have to stay within 15' of the west breakwall for deep water, and when we did that, saw no less than 12 feet. The harbor has limited amenities: pit toilets, no showers, but there is 30A service at the docks. There is no diesel available, and it looked like the gasoline pump was inoperative. There was a sign for pumpout, but nobody on duty, and no hoses in sight. Nobody was there to take our fee, but there was a pay box just down the docks. The harbor is very scenic, with trails leading up to waterfalls, a scenic overlook of Lake Superior, and down to a rustic beach area. A nice park area with pavillion is also right by the docks. We enjoyed our stay here very much, except for the lack of marking the shoal water.

Captain: , Madeline Island (140)

First come first served for the seven or eight visitor spots. The floating dock was only $16 a night, a deal. Massive old growth forests surround the area, lovely trails taking you through the timber giants to Rainbow falls and others. Clean outhouse. friendly fellow boaters to help you at the dock.



a real treasure, 2014-08-26
Captain: , Naples, FL (1096)

We did not see less than 14 ft at entrance to breakwater and 9 feet at wall. Lovely woodsy setting. Room for about four 36 ft boats, each with 30 amp power and a picnic table at the transient section of the wall. Note this is a wall not slips. There is an attendant but only for the concession stand and to take the docking fee. Be sure to walk across the suspension bridge and take the 3/4 mile trail to a Rainbow Falls. The entire trail and falls were beautiful. Seniors Pass is honored, so for our 36 ft trawler we paid $10 and that included power.
