You can purchase WI maps through the WI Bike Fed. Or, you can go to the WI DOT and find the same data organized by county. They are not as easy to use as you need to print off a map for each county you plan on traveling through.
Bicycling, Brewing & Backgammon...What a life.

I did this ride several years ago and used an old version of this book:

Have fun; it's a great ride.  Make sure to stop and have fun at Sleeping Bear Dunes!

Just finished my Lake Michigan Tour (using the Milwaukee ferry to connect MI and WI).  I used the Shoreline West Route from the League of Michigan Bicyclists: http://www.lmb.org/index.php/Routes-Maps.html and then picked up the Adventure Cycling Maps from Mackinaw City to Eagle River WI.  From Eagle River, WI on I used a combination of the excellent WI bicycling maps (http://www.bfw.org/store/index.php) and my old GRABAAWR cue sheets to get back home.
