Schoolhouse Beach was our first stop once we arrived at Washington Island, but we could have stayed there all day. My kids enjoyed stacking the rocks and braving the chilly water, while the adults relaxed on the beach and watched them play. Absolutely worth the trip, and we hope to visit here again some day!

Amazing views mixed with history of "Death's Door", this unique beach is not made of sand but of Great Lakes polished smooth stones! Please feel them, enjoy them, make beach art with them... But if you take one from the beach (and it is tempting) it will cost you! Stealing one of these precious stones comes with a $250.00 fine! The whole of Washington Island is amazing, I highly recommend a weekend trip for anyone!
