We have visited this site many time always looking for change and beauty and peacefulness. Never overcrowded. Beware of the dusty road entering the area and potholes. Prepare to get your car washed when you leave.

Great park for hiking. Gorgeous views of the bay on the overlook. No charge as it is a county park. Nice woods area for hiking. October colors are spectacular.

The overlook is not much, but if you are visiting in the fall you may find the drive into this park very scenic. We hit the colors at their peak and really enjoyed this park.

This is just a small overlook but I enjoyed being there. The road in is rather bouncy, but it was easy to find and the walk down to the bluff is well-built.

I just stopped at the lookout area and took some pictures. It was a nice stop. I probably wouldn't stop again, but would say it's worth a stop at least once!

Beautiful view. Peaceful, charming. Worth the drive. We watched kayaks. Bumpy road to get there, but don’t let that deter you.

Great spot to take pictures. The drive in can be a little bumpy but otherwise worth the drive. Easy to get around.

Driving into the state park was picturesque and tranquil. The road was rustic with some potholes but easy to follow.

Beautiful view of the sunset into the bay of Green Bay, you could see a thin blue strip of land across the water, 25 miles away. The weather and water is very unpredictable in Door County, it's fun to just sit and watch the water...More

Same answer; check their website. If you do go, wear bright orange just to be on the safe side.
