Despite hearing wonderful things about Peninsula State Park we decided to leave the crowds behind and hike at Newport. It was the best decision of our entire vacation and I can't wait to come back and camp! The trails are pristine, as this is Wisconsin's only designated wilderness park. We hiked a beautiful path along the lake that was flanked... More

First of all I have to disclose....this is really a hiking park. So with full disclosure, if you are looking for a park to drive through and see the sites look elsewhere. But if you want to get out for a little exercise and solitude....this is a great park. Many trail options for hiking or backpacking. Reminded me a lot... More

Did a short 2.2 mile trail. Half of it was very well groomed. The other half needs the staff to roll up their sleeves, grab some machetes, and clear out the overgrowth.

Every year I family hikes the trails in New Port State Park. They are flat, wide, well maintained and offer spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the surrounding rock bluffs. Must do!

I stopped in for a quick visit to check out this park. It doesn't have as many visitors as some of the other parks in Door County, so if you prefer fewer crowds, definitely check out this one! I visited the beach and I wish I could have spent more time here.

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.
