Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The beauty of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore took a beating during this year's winter storms.
The docks at East Bay on Sand Island were all damaged but one suffered particular damage.

The dock closest to campsites 1, 2 and 4 is so damaged that it is no longer repairable and will remains closed until further notice. Park spokespeople say they are expecting to receive funding to replace the public dock in 2015.

The damage to the dock in front of the NPS headquarters was not as damaged and can be used in the meantime. Also, the park is working to improve its docks, campsites and trails.
