Cornucopia - Bayfield Peninsula, Wisconsin

"Cornie" is a little seaside village nestled at the western edge of the Bayfield Peninsula along highway 13 about 22 miles from the town of Bayfield.

Siskiwit Bay and the Siskiwit River form a natural harbor for both recreational and commercial fishing vessels. Complimenting the marina are a bed and breakfast, a few artisan shops and Halvorson's commercial fishing operation and retail store. Just east of the marina complex is the township museum, the town park with picnic tables and swimming beach, and the artesian well.

Cornie Events.
The annual Cornucopia Community Club Fish Fry is the first weekend in July with fireworks will on Saturday and the community fish fry on Sunday. Cornucopia Day is the second Saturday in August. In winter the first weekend in March, weather permitting, Corny hosts their annual Corny-Val winterfest. For more info on Cornie events see their website

Cornucopia Harbor Gift Shops


There's a handful of quaint artisan and gift shops lining the harborfun in cornucopia.

One year we were walking along the boardwalk behind these shops and we noticed a tub of Leinies beer floating in cool spring water with a note to passers-by to have a free one in honor of Ricky's birthday!

Cornucopia Beach and Park

Cornucopia PagodaWelcome to Cornucopia WI


A few miles SE of town, via Cty C, there is an attractive but rustic campground at Siskiwit Lake. There also appears to be a few lakeside campsites at the Marina. Otherwise, it is the town park at Little Sand Bay (east) or west to Herbster and their town park. Both are on Lake Superior. Go Here for more info on Camping in the Bayfield Peninsula area.
