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!

We were able to walk to the park, but one day we decided to drive so we could go through the whole park and see the fall colors. There is a fee, but it is nominal and well worth the amount. We stopped at places that were photo friendly and took hikes when we found an appealing trail. Our day... More

Went the last weekend most of the campsites were open this season and the park was totally booked! It was great to see so many people out enjoying the outdoors. The park is very pretty and has some good hiking and biking trails.

Peninsula State Park is a wonder. There is not a finer park on the Door County Peninsula. You can choose to drive through it, bike though it, hike through it and boat around it. You can visit a lighthouse, go to the top of a tower overlooking Green Bay, go swimming at a beach, go golfing, bird watching, fishing, camping,... More

Pleasant drive to enjoy the park especially if you are lucky to see some color changes. Small admission. If you like to bike, this provides miles of entertainment. Also visited the cemetery with lots of historical anecdotes provided by a separate tour guide. (Ghost tours)

The crown jewel of the five state parks located in Door County, Wisconsin. The park has water activities and rentals, picnic areas, Eagle Bluff light house, a nature center, golf course, hiking and biking trails, gift shop, restaurant, snow mobile and cross country skiing trails, and an outdoor ampatheater. A must stop during your visit to Door County.

Peninsula State Park is a fantastic park for hiking and bike riding. There are many miles of trails to cover and a good variety of difficulty. The scenery is simply outstanding. We usually visit in fall for the changing color of the leaves. This park is well worth the trip.

Last time we rented bikes, this time walked about 8 miles of trails during one of the most picturesque fall weekends of the year. Despite the Fall 50 runners going right through the park, we still managed to find peace and solitude in this glorious park. Don't miss it.

We traveled the roads in the park enjoying the fall colors and the views out over the water. We stopped and climbed the observation tower (I made it but my wife stopped half way, uncomfortable with the height). The view was great and we were lucky enough to watch a bald eagle soaring nearby. We also stopped at the lighthouse... More
