We are not campers. The park is structured more for camping than anything else. There are bike trails if you are interested in biking. Driving through the park, you are often limited in your view of the water.

We didn't spend a lot of time in the park. It was a nice drive and we took a short walk down one of the trails. I wish I had more time to hike the park and it looks like it would be a ton of fun to stay and camp. Lots of people of bikes exploring the trails.

Very pretty. Easy walks to waterfalls and to Lake Superior. Trees are spectacular in the fall. You can drive to most sights. There is a SEVERAL stair climb to an observation tower that gives you several opportunities for great views, if you can manage all the stairs. Especially amazing in the fall when we were there. There a a couple... More

Wonderful park with lots to do and see. Beach was nice. American Folklore Theatre a fun experience. Excellent biking trails. Take an early morning ride to the beach for coffee and a wonderful view. Good facilities for showers. Beautiful sunsets. But watch out for poison ivy. It is EVERYWHERE and park is understaffed to keep up with spraying. Be sure... More

Been camping there going on 65 years now...still a great place, The reservation system is really inept. They say that the campground is full and it never is. The state of WI needs to find a better company to handle their reservation system. Beach still sucks where they are trying to put in grasses and shrubbery. We were there recently... More

How many state parks have an outdoor amphitheater with professional musicals each night of the week, water sport rentals, a 75' lookout tower, a 100 yr old lighthouse, a high-end 18 hole golf course along with a short course for beginners, acres of campsites, miles of hiking and dedicated biking trails? Pen St. Park has all of that and more.... More

This is a beautiful state park, with miles of beach trails, as well as long hikes through the woods (be sure and bring bug repellent). Highlight destination is Eagle Tower, with a climb of 109 steps that will reward you with a beautiful view of off shore islands and Green Bay.

It was time to work off some of that food we'd been eating in Door County. We had previously done a trolley tour that went through the park and decided a bike ride to experience it closer would be nice. We rented 7 speed bikes from Edge of Park Bike Rental. 7 speeds are fine for the casual riders such... More

Something for everyone in the family to enjoy. We hiked up the tower, played at the beach, rented Kayaks, and had the best views of the sunset in Door County.
