    County forests, a federal park (Apostle Islands National Lakeshore), Wisconsin DNR lands and tribal lands shape the Town?s demography.

The facility can seat 100 with all tables and chairs provided. A fully equipped commercial kitchen is included for the preparation of food and a commercial ice maker.
