A beautiful day in the woods. We hiked the Newport Loop and it was nicely graded with beautiful views. You could get to the Lake Michigan shoreline by veering off a little. Not as crowded as Peninsula State Park. Quiet and pretty.

Have visited here twice now and is definitely my favorite state park on the door peninsula! The lynd trail is great with lake views and trails to the shoreline. This park is also much more quiet with less visitors than the other door state parks which makes it a nice get away from high tourist areas.

Newport State Park has several campsites that you hike to. There is an extensive trail system with several spots to look at the water. It's another great WI State Park in Door County.

There were four of us. Two were 14/12 year olds. The trail isn't rugged but plenty of bumpy/rocky/roots on path. The trail is great though. You will go over/under fallen trees. Take a side path to look at the waves crashing onto the shore in some spots. Lots of interesting little finds and some information boards along the way. We... More

If you are in Door County make a point to visit Peninsula State Park, The Ridges Sanctuary and Newport. North of Ellison Bay this state jewel on the Lake has something for everyone. Hiking trails, beach. Our October visit was glorious. All colors at peak. Very few people. It is probably too far off the path for many. Take a... More

Went to Door County this weekend for fall color. Peninsula state park was very crowded and went to Newport next morning. It was almost empty. It has combination of nature and beach trails and offered us excellent photo-ops for fall color.

Took the family hiking at Newport State Park while visiting Door County on a crowded weekend in Door County. Newport was not crowded because it is more northerly. This Park is for those who love nature and enjoyable but not difficult trails. The park is very well kept. They have knowledgeable office workers/rangers. Highly recommend.

My husband and I planned to go to Peninsula State park to ride bikes on their trials but unfortunately the trails were closed due to heavy rains that fell a few days prior. They suggested we go to Newport State park which we did. The park was pretty much empty. We only saw a few other people which really surprised... More

This is not your typical camping state park. There are only 16 camp sites and they are all hike in sites. This is a wilderness type state park. But it's also very accessible even for families with young children. The hike ins are short, the longest being only 3.5 miles and most being around a mile but you still feel... More

The trails at Newport Park are excellent beginner off road bike trails. They are wide - no single track that we found - but really fun to ride on with the small inclines & declines. About 12 miles of trails to explore. The park also has a sandy beach, miles of hiking trails (check out the new poetry trail if... More
