The leaves were starting to change and the park was just beautiful to walk through. Quite a gem as state parks go. Real nice paths too.

Peninsula State Park was described as the "Crown Jewel" of Door County by the Trolley Tour Guide. A fitting title to be sure! This is a wonderful place to spend the day.

Wonderful place for families and camping. Beautiful sights. Lots of hike and bike trails. Beach is a little small for the amount of people there.

Wonderful views at every turn. Great facilities and plenty of biking and hiking trails. Nicollette Beach has good views and food to purchase. Overall it is a huge park that needs at least 2-3 hrs even for a quick stops and a drive around.

The park is wonderful for biking, hiking or visiting by car! Beautiful views at every turn, from water-level beach views to expansive bluff views. Climb Eagle Tower for the best view of all. Wonderful. Then, check out the golf.

My family and I rented bicycles and biked the 9.5 mile trail. The trail was very scenic and clearly labeled for the novice biker.
