In 1854, Chief Buffalo traveled to Washington, D.C. on a mission to preserve this sacred place for his people. Legendary Waters Resort & Casino was designed to complement and preserve his lifetime of love for this land and its waters for generations to come.
On August 11, 2011, Legendary Waters Resort & Casino opened its doors to gaming, lodging, dining, entertainment, featuring two popular campgrounds and a marina. Legendary Waters Resort & Casino is located on the northern-most shores of the State of Wisconsin within the boundaries of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. This facility is proudly owned and operated by the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
Located just three miles north of Bayfield, twenty-three miles north of Ashland, and eighty miles east of The Twin Ports (Duluth/Superior) on Highway 13, Legendary Waters is a beautiful resort and casino on Lake Superior that provides guests with amazing views throughout the entire facility.
The gaming floor offerings consist of over 240 “state-of-the-art” slot machines ranging from 1¢ to $5 in denomination, live Blackjack and poker, exciting and fun promotions, a player’s club and rewards program. Bingo, cribbage and special tournaments may be offered on a seasonal basis.
The premiere hotel offers an indoor pool, indoor/outdoor whirlpool and 47 luxurious rooms each showcasing its own spectacular view of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.
Buffalo Bay, one of Legendary Waters’ two campgrounds is also adjacent to the resort and casino and accommodates RVs and tents. Point Detour “Wilderness” Campground is located a few miles north, but seems a world apart with its rustic camp sites nestled on a bluff overlooking Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands. The marina at Legendary Waters Resort & Casino accommodates slips for both transient and seasonal docking, and the boat launch is accessible for smaller crafts. Most slips have electric and water hook-ups.
When your day calls for a delicious meal, Wii-Kway-Ong Dining & Spirits and Minising Café are both located onsite for your dining enjoyment. Wii-Kway-Ong Dining & Spirits is open seven days a week offering a full menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu ranges from sandwiches and salads to steak and fresh fish.
