Lion's Den Wetland Area
Near the Lions Den is Ulao, a Ghost Town
Ulao was one of the areas first towns and had a pier that went out into Lake Michigan to load timber onto steam ships.
The 105 year old Ghost Town tavern and a few pilings of the pier remain as the only remaining remnant of the historic Port Ulao village.
Unlike the dry Western States, where you will see whole towns preserved,
Wisconsin climate is tough on old buildings.
Once the roof is gone, time and weather will quickly destroy the rest of the building.
