Don't wait until the last minute, you'll kick yourself. Camp here. Great swimming, doesn't get deep too fast if you're worried about the kids, clear fresh water (though usually chilly), picnic beach with facilities including food at reasonable prices, canoe/kayak rental, paddle boards, water-bike(?) & bicycle rental or bring your own bike. Hiking trails pristine, each has special features. Do... More

This is a beautiful Park. I would recommend renting bikes and hitting the trails. We also went to the American Folklore Theatre that is in the park and that show was great.

We spent most of the day here and really didn't see it all. We hiked the trails , went to the beach area, climbed the Eagle Tower and had a wonderful day even with the bugs.

This is a very large, densely forested state part with lots of hiking trails, bike paths, scenic drives, secluded camp grounds, beaches, an outdoor theater and giant observation towers. It is well worth a visit, if even for a drive-through.

You go to DC to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life so no trip is complete without a walk, picnic, camping, bike ride,swim, boating or car ride thru the park. Some rental facilities for whatever you are looking for are located as you enter the park. It is peaceful and serene with all sorts of trails... More

This park is huge! The hiking is amazing, especially the Eagle Trail as it takes you by the edge of the water and by the bluffs. Absolutely beautiful! The beach is small but still very nice. You can camp here as well, the campsites are huge and very clean!! Plan to make a day trip here if you are visiting... More

Loved the hiking trails, especially Eagle Trail. Great views including the one on top of Eagle Tower and the Eagle Panorama view. Nicolet Beach is a small beach so expect it to be crowded. Love that the snack area and changing rooms are right near the beach. There's a rental place right on the beach to rent bikes, kayaks, canoes,... More

Peninsula state park is a BEAUTIFUL park, great hiking trails with breathtaking views. Drive through or go on a 1-6 mile hike, it's lovely! Also, most trails are 100% wooded....do pay attention to the levels of the hikes, if they say "difficult" it is!
