Fall Color Report

Percent of Peak Color

Predicted Date of Peak Color
2nd Week of October


The summer is coming to a close and the leaves are just starting to change. Because of our proximity to Lake Superior, that usually happens a little later in this area than locations that are inland.

When looking for fall color, we highly recommend the view from the ferry between Bayfield and Madeline Island which highlights the entire Bayfield Peninsula and provides spectacular views of the Apostle Islands.

The apple harvest is starting in the orchards around Bayfield, with early apples ripening now and many other varieties just around the corner. Check out what we have available at our Berry and Orchard Report, updated twice weekly:


Don’t miss our annual Apple Festival! The 58th annual event will be held in downtown Bayfield on October 4, 5, & 6, 2019.
