Door County has so much to offer tourists & residents alike but so many places can be overly-run with people in mid-summer. Cave Point County Park is located on the north side of Whitefish Dunes State Park, and as advised, this is where you want to park if you are just going for a short visit. A short trail within...

It was a good time. Not too many ppl, great views we don't see in Chicago. It was one of the best spots we walked/hiked too, I'd go again.

We went here on the recommendation of a friend, and they were right. This place was great. The water hits the sides of the bluffs and makes a great sound. The kids loved it. It was fun to explore. The views were amazing. We braved the freezing water and went down and walked along the water on the rocks. Would... More

Some people like to sit during their vacations. My husband and I like to explore an area's local, county, state, and national parks. Our recent visit to Door County afforded us the opportunity to visit and hike one of the lakeside trails in Cave Point County Park. Parking was easy, and our two dogs (on leashes) and us enjoyed both... More

We toured all of Door County and this was my favorite place on the entire peninsula! The views of Lake Michigan with the rocky coastline are incredible and not to be missed. It is located on the quieter and less crowded side of the peninsula. The water is incredibly clear and this is a peaceful and relaxing spot to take... More

I have lived in Wisconsin for10 years and only just recently became aware of this small, but beautiful park! It is absolutely gorgeous! I could have spent the whole day just walking along the "cliffs" and sitting on the rocks and just enjoying the view! It reminded me a little of Lake Tahoe. Needless to say I am going to... More

I you want some amazing views of the coast line, go to Cave Point. If you are worried about how much money you've been spending in expensive Door County, go to Cave Point! Cave Point County Park is technically located within Whitefish Dunes State Park. You have to pay a $7 day pass to park in a State Park. County... More

If you are anywhere close to door county, this is a spectacular sight! We saw the shoreline by foot and by kayak. Very very beautiful!!! There's restrooms, a nice picnic area, no fees, and pure natural beauty! Please take the time to see this natural wonder!

We took the cheapskate route and parked in Cave Point to avoid the $10 fee at Whitefish Dunes. (Sorry, State of Wisconsin.) That said -- the mile walk along a narrow trail to the beach is pretty spectacular, with cool rock formations and cliffs, wildflowers galore, crashing waves, Caribbean-blue waters, and fabulous Lake Michigan views.

I highly recommend this park to people who want to see the shoreline without paying state park fees. The rock formations are amazing and it's really fun to watch the waves crash against them. My husband and I were visiting Door County to see the lighthouse (which he loves), but he says he this park was the highlight of our... More
