“Beautiful county park, take a hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This county park is along the Lake Michigan shoreline in Door County just north of Whitefish Bay Dunes. Because it's a county park, there are no fees or state park stickers required. There is always easy parking.

Walking close to the cliff's edge is even more exciting on windy days when the waves splash against the rocks, but there is always a pretty view. A short hike along the water to the north, and it's an easy drop to the rock ledge.

Beautiful in any season. Great picture opportunities here!

“Fun adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

While this is a county park, don't let that fool you! It was fun to hike along the rocky shoreline and see all the amazing rock formations. There are also inland trails to hike. You can find picnic spots and bathrooms (although very smelly). This was a fun, free activity that the whole family enjoyed!

“Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We had the best weather. The beach wasn't too crowded. There is kayaks tours to take. And later that night we came back to see the stars on the Luminated paths!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Views are amazing, and you can stand really close to the edge of the cliffs. The hiking is pretty good. This is a county park, but it's just as good, if not, better, than the neighboring Whitefish Dunes State Park. Plus, since it's not a state park, parking is free too.

“Incredible view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Great place to visit and take some pictures. Best part of all is that it is free, unlike most other things in Door County.
