Chequamegon Point, Wisconsin

Located in northern Wisconsin (UNITED STATES of AMERICA), Chequamegon Point is a thin, heavily forested peninsula in northern Ashland County — south of Lake Superior and northeast of Chequamegon Bay. Its width varies from almost 1,000 feet near the tip to only about 250 feet in the southern part. The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians officially owns this peninsular land, since Chequamegon Point is within the Bad River Reservation boundaries. Labeled on the Bing map above, Long Island has been connected to the peninsula's sandspit since about 30 years ago due to increased sedimentation piling up. This island features three lighthouses, which are unfortunately not opened to the public but are, of course, visible to visitors exploring Long Island. These lighthouses are LaPointe Lighthouse, Long Island Chequamegon Light, and Long Island Light Tower. The original LaPointe Lighthouse was truly a house-like structure with a slightly taller rectangular area for the light on the roof.
