Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
Apostle Island is located in Wisconsin, and boasts 21 islands, plus 12 full miles of mainland coast to enjoy. This area of drive-in beaches offers families a great place to hike, camp, paddle and sail. Hiking is especially fun, since there are more than 50 miles of maintained trails to enjoy!
Finally, as you check out drive-in beaches for families, don’t miss Cannon Beach in Oregon. Haystack Rock is one of Oregon’s most recognizable natural features, and there are volunteers who spend all summer there. They happily share with kids and families all about the tide pools, creatures and birds that like to call Haystack Rock home. It’s fascinating!
