There's a lighthouse to explore as well! This place always makes our top list of things to do when we go to Door County. This... More

Very nice place to visit. Many locals were visiting a beach in the area by boat as well as by car. We rented bikes and rode through a trail around the park and to the beach. Took two and a half hours of pleasant riding and stopping for eats and drinks. Good family activity

there is a lighthouse, you may visit, and there is a beach and a playground for kids, also there are some water activities you can play. actually nothing very special. Normally it requires admission fee, but may be we arrive late, at 5pm, so no need to pay when enter the park.

This park is a treasure with the vast hiking and biking trails. We have not camped here, but we understand that it is a high demand destination. Unfortunately the Eagle Tower is no longer available to climb, but there are plenty other opportunities for recreation in this gem of a state park. The views are spectacular.

Beautiful. We drove through at twilight and it looked like a forest from a fairy tale. I wish we could have gone back to tour the light house, but otherwise enjoyed the nature and scenery.

This is a great park. I'd been here before camping, but this go-round we just got a day pass and drove around, Still very impressive and well worth your time. Take the shoreline drive if nothing else, wonderful scenery.

I've been going to Peninsula State Park since I was kid. My wife and now take our kids and still are in awe of the beauty the park has to offer. My wife and I biked the park easily over 200 times and is still our favorite bike ride. We try to make it to the park every other weekend... More

One of the best parks in Wisconsin. A nice little surprise in the park - The Northern Sky Theater. Check it out - very nice venue with great plays/musicals. Nice biking trails and hiking. Lots of camping places, but make sure you make your reservations early - very popular.

Have been camping here for at least two weeks for the last ten plus years. The last couple years things have been changing and not for the better. Campers are getting more careless in keeping the facility clean, rangers are not as on top of rule enforcement such as noise and # of cars on a site, vegetation overtaking bike... More

The Peninsula State Park is the gem of parks in Door County. There are great hiking and bike trails. You can camp either in a fancy motor home or pup tent. There are great beaches that are great even for the smallest swimmer/paddler. You can attend special programs at the Northern Lights Theater. This is a must see for anyone... More
