We went to the park specifically so I could capture some sunset photos and we were not disappointed. It was cold (mid 40's) but the wind was calm. We went to only one spot - Tennison Bay kayak launch - because we didn't have much time before sunset, but there are TONS of places to stop and observe nature. It's... More

The location of this park is wonderful. We were out of state so they hit us for $35 for a state park sticker. While we were there the park was relatively empty. The bathhouse across from our site didn't have showers. The sites also needed some gravel as many were muddy. The Reason for my relative low score was that... More

You could just about spend all day here! I'd say for first timer's I'd recommend touring it with the segways but be sure to take advantage of the numerous lookouts throughout the park as they have great views of the nearby islands (Adventure island, Strawberry island, Pirate island, Horseshoe island) and the U.P. as well. We were quite surprised to... More

Very nice park with a lot of nice scenery. The mountain tower and the light house are a must see. There is an entry fee but it's worth paying to upkeep such a beautiful place.

Love the camping, the nature center and all of the other amenities this park has to offer, It is a bit hard to get in in the on season, but well worth it!

This is a beautiful park. It is huge. Lots of good views abound. There is also a lighthouse that you can take a tour in the summer months. No tours were giving in early May though. Make sure you do have a state sticker even in the off season when is the park. There are Rangers driving around checking.

climbing the tower is always a special treat, getting to look at the shimmering water! We like to bike here in summer- and fat bike in winter when there is snow. Perfect place for a day-time picnic or a weekend of camping.

This is a beautiful state park. We did the "eagle trail" it wasn't difficult, but it did go up and down hill. there were great views of the bay! I would definitely return and hike again. I went there in mid-April and the park was pretty empty. We did pass a few couples, but mostly our group was on our... More

The views are absolutely astonishing. Wisconsin did a very nice job on this state park. We went off season and the walking trails were closed, possibly because of the dryness of the area. Hopefully they get some rain soon as it is very dry. We plan on returning later in the year to walk some of the trails and possibly... More

Our family had a great time biking in the park. Great views. We rented bikes from Edge of the Park rentals. Highly recommended!
