Superior Coastal Plain Regional Master Plan

The Superior Coastal Plain region includes state parks, state natural areas, fish and wildlife areas, and the St. Louis River Stream Bank Protection Area. The ecological landscape intersects portions of Ashland, Bayfield, and Douglas counties, and a very small portion of Iron County. The region contains a variety of notable ecological resources including the Apostle Islands, boreal forests, and tremendous water falls. Department properties in the region, including Amnicon Falls, Copper Falls, Pattison, and Big Bay State Parks provide a variety of recreation opportunities to the public year-round.
