We decided to visit the park after reading other reviews. It is definitely worth the drive to the park! The shoreline, cliffs, rock sculptures are all breathtaking. The only down side was that our gps took us the wrong way....watch the road signs!

You follow the sign off of Hwy 42 and it seems like forever before you find the road into the parking area - but once you're there and walk to the bluff you'll be lost in the views. We've visited many times during every season (Winter is my personal favorite when the trees ad caves are coated in ice). Walk... More

I stopped here on my way out of Whitefish Dunes State Park and I'm glad that I did. The shoreline / water caves were very interesting. And I almost missed a lot of it too before realizing how far down the trails ran. Still, it's a quick visit with decent parking and some picnic areas too.

A MUST see when in DC! The glacial formations along the coast and the newly renovated quaint lighthouse bridged by a water walkway was SPECTACULAR! My husband and I enjoyed our contribution to one of MANY rock towers, which is a tradition started by the Eskimos many years ago! We know winter's freeze will destroy them, but we have pictures...

I agree with the other reviewers that rate this location highly. If you have flexibility, I'd go on a windy day to experience some high waves. The complete access to the shoreline edge is nice. At other locales, I could easily imagine restricted access for safety that would negate the view.

Absolutely lovely full of fresh lake breezes, majestic white cedars, picturesque trails, great photo ops. The trails are a bit rough with rocks and tree roots so be careful if you are not sure-footed. This is the park to see in Door County!

Cave Point is such a beautiful spot for pics + just experiencing Lake Michigan in a new way - the water crashing against the rocks. I am local and I still am thrilled each + every time I go to Cave Point!

Nice place to walk the rock shelf right out into the water. Best for people with sure footing tho. Cliffs aren't big but can be difficult to step down. Amazing views from above also! Great picnic areas available.

Another beautiful county park in Door county. Great place for a picnic. Great views of Lake Michigan and the crashing waves on the stone. When the water level is low you can climb down and walk along the shoreline on the giant rocks. If your brave you can jump into the devils bowl. A for sure stop in Door County
