Beautiful park right downtown FishCreek. It's easy to navigate, you can camp, go on hiking trails, bike ride and have picnics. We love going to Nicolette Bay and have a picnic. There are picnic tables, bathrooms sand volleyball area, and the lake is so pretty. Great way to spend a day with family, friends or alone.

The view from this point of land is spectacular and inspiring. We Midwesterners feel we must go elsewhere to see incredible scenery. NOT TRUE! Go to Peninsula State Park in gorgeous Door County. Huge trees, miles of lake viewing, cool breezes and wonderful walking trails. For those who have no problems with heights (unlike me) do climb the tower. This... More

my fiance and I made our first trek up to door county and spent a lot of our time hiking, biking and exploring Peninsula State Park. Great selection of trails and paths. The view from Eagle Tower is one of a kind. All the trails and maps are well labeling, making it nearly impossible to get lost.

We usually drive through & stop for views, pictures, relaxation. The old cemetery was a surprise! We enjoyed a play, "full house" under the stars.

Walking or snow shoeing your way through frozen, forested landscapes with views of the bay. Not a bad way to spend a little time away from it all. Love our State Parks, and this is no exception!

We saw 1 bald eagle, climbed the eagle tower, and had fun zooming around on our bikes looking at the gorgeous leaves. Water is around this park, so many scenic spots for pictures. Scenic yet there are people around so you feel safe. Campers are here all year long so hard core.

Peninsula State Park is, in a word, beautiful. It has something for everyone: bird watchers, campers, golfers, hikers, kayakers, light house aficionados, picnickers, snowshoers, etc. We enjoy driving along Shore Drive, which is very close to the waters of Green Bay. The park is large, and spans the bay between Ephraim and Fish Creek. One can enter the park in... More

Great place to hike and the views are outstanding! Taking the trolley thru the park is also a great way to see the park.

If you're anywhere near Fish Creek and Door county, you have to spend some time in "The Park." I've been there dozens of times and done almost everything the park has to offer, but there are a few truly incredible gems that stand out: 1) Hiking. No difficult hikes, really, but many family friendly hikes. The best is the Eagle... More

I came to Door County to participate in the Century Bike Tour. One of our rest stops was in Peninsula State Park. The ride through the park and the view as I stopped to rest/snack was exceptional. The following day, my husband and I biked through the park on a more leisurely trip; so much to see and share!
