Apostle Island sea caves remain closed despite cold snap

CORNUCOPIA, WI — Despite all this cold weather, the Apostle Island Ice Caves in Wisconsin remain closed this week.

Last week’s cold snap helped form a lot more ice on Lake Superior, but access to the well-known mainland ice caves remains closed.

Apostle Islands National Lakeshore spokespeople say the ice that has formed so far this winter is jumbled and jagged, and has been pushed around by wind and waves.

Park staff call it “shark fin” ice.

Walk-in access to the caves is not open to the public until the park officially deems it safe.

Staff will keep monitoring conditions.

The following ice cave update was posted by the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Facebook page on February 9th.
