Boldt Castle

Recommended Posts

I was vaguely aware that there was something like that up there, then stumbled on it when I was looking at some stuff about the Great Lakes Basin. I think I gotta check it out. Interesting story, sad, but interesting.

The boathouse looks amazing. Are there any boats in it...(I hope)?

I used to do boat shows up east of there with the canoe and Whitehall, but it's been about 30 years since I've made it up there.

The boathouse has several SLR skiffs, a steam launch, an unusually sterned pick nick, a racer, and a totally awesome 1948 Hacker that is registered, some poor sap gets paid to drive it.

The museum has a runabout building with two boats you can board and explore, the Elco with fore and aft staterooms was pretty cool. There is also a small craft building, a repair shop, and a hydroplane building. There are several craft in the water, skiffs to paddle if the water isn't too rough, and Boldt's houseboat La Duchesne.
