Climb the tower and take a panoramic photo during the fall and you will have a great palette of colors. If you are lucky, you might find an eagle flying around or dipping in the water quickly for his dinner of the day. Every year I visit the Park and almost every year climb the tower. There are also many... More

I have been coming to this spot every since I was a kid and it's just as nice now as ever. The area is wooded and hilly, and the view from the top is incredible. One time we even climbed the tower when the northern lights were flashing from horizon to horizon.

Five older family members recently visited Eagle Tower. Although, some of the members had difficulty walking, all of us climbed to the top. What a great view from the top and we were all glad that we had climbed it. We felt the tower was sturdy, but many people were attempting to climb the tower at the same time. Many... More

Eagle Tower is a wooden staircase basically. It feels a little rickety going up but if you go to the top, you will not be disappointed with the view! There are several landings as you make your way up. The staircase is narrow so you have to take turns with people going down as you are going up.

Climbing stairs to the top of this all-wooden tower can be quite frightening to those who fear heights especially on windy days when there is some swaying and creaking of wood. However, the view of Whitefish Bay at the top is breathtaking and worth the climb.

I loved the view. It is definitly a must see when in Door County. I have only been to Door County twice and checked the Eagle Tower out both times.

After paying the park entry fee, you might as well take advantage of this decent watch tower. It is just high enough, and open air enough to be a bit scary. It's a bit of a hike to the top, but worth the climb. Check out the small tube scope at the northwest side of the top platform--it will point... More
