Excellent hike in nature

Newport State Park is excellent and serene. Make sure you hike the trails to Europe lake. Bring your book and you'll find a bench in a quiet spot.

I recently visited Newport State Park on a Thursday during my vacation to Door County, in which I also made a point of visiting all 5 State Parks in Door County! I enjoyed my time in Newport State Park, and I really felt like it was one of Door County's forgotten parks. There were maybe 10 cars in the parking... More

Kayaking here is phenomenal! Stayed at a rustic "hike in site" pretty cool, toilets a little suspect but the seclusion and nature is wonderful here, you don't feel like you are camping in touristy door county wisconsin. As you Kayak around you can see huge rocks about 4 feet under you through the crystal clear water, plenty of places to... More

LOVE this park! It's a great place for hiking or snow shoeing. You can kayak too. Go often and continue to Cave point just down the road. It also has lots to offer.

We enjoyed our bike ride in and out of the woods and by the lake. The beach looked very nice although we did not swim there.

Great place for camping! A mile hike (at least) from the parking lot to any of the camp site, so pack accordingly. Great nature area! Great views of Lake Michigan! Privacy!

The park has some interesting history which you may want to read up on before visiting - and there are resources in the park itself. We hiked the relatively short Lynd Point and Fern trail loop (2.5ish miles??). Lynds point was OK but we couldn't get past the clouds of gnats and other bugs we walked through. Bug spray kept...

This is one of my favorite Wisconsin state parks. It always has that off the beaten path feel even though Door County is crawling with tourists. We did the Newport trail today. This is a relatively flat trail that is huge on forest but light on lake views. A great all ages trail if they can handle a two hour... More
