Do it. It is worth it

A long climb up but worth the views. We were lucky to see soaring birds the day we climbed to the top. On a clear day the view was awesome.

The tower is closed and the state is deciding whether they are going to replace the tower. The tower sits on a cliff overlooking Lake Michigan. Since the view from the bottem is pretty good, I'm sure the view from the top of the tower would be impressive.

The tower is closed and may not open again due to structural problems. This was disappointing. The park is totally worth a visit and a bike ride along the sunset trail is highly recommended. There are plenty of other places to get a view of the lake from this park.

Closed due to structural issues, bummer. Lighthouse was nice to see, hiking okay, pick a trail where you can see the lake, otherwise kind of boring.

This is a healthy climb and maybe not for those afraid of heights! Great view though and worth the trip.

One of the best views of Door County is the view of Green Bay. You have a 180*view of water. This view is spectacular in Fall with ll of the autumnal colors at peak.

Climb this tower and you are up where the eagles fly! No kidding. Great views any season, but especially in the fall with all the colorful leaves. Hold on to your hat. It may be calm on the ground, but it is almost always windy up there. If you concentrate, you can actually see fish swimming in the shallows of... More

We came here in the summer of 2014 and this tower had excellent views! So sad to see that it was closed for structural concerns. Hopeful that they will build a new one!

Sorry to say, it is now closed. They need better signs telling people at the entrance. Many people didn't know until they got there. It needs major repairs or might be rebuilt. We understand as it has served millions of people over the years.

There is a great view from the top of the tower and it is not a difficult climb. Unfortunately the tower is closed for safety reasons with no plan to repair or reopen.
