I have been going to Peninsula State Park for over 50 years. There is so much to do in this beautiful state park. There are breath-taking hiking trails along the cliffs of the Green Bay, an outstanding and challenging golf course, a historical lighthouse open to tours in the summer months, spacious campsite and a beautiful beach area.

I've visited here several times over the years and I think it's a very neat place to visit. You have great sunsets, great skiing, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, large fields of forget-me-nots typically in July/August, nice beaches, great camping, nice hiking trails and great views on the drive up the bluffs. Though I've probably forgotten a few things, I think you... More

We have been skiing Peninsula Park's trails daily for decades. They were some of the best state park trails in Wisconsin, having been partially laid out by a famous Olympic skier. But in the past 5-7 years, park management has allowed everything to deteriorate horribly: The trails have not been maintained widely enough to allow snowfall to reach them or... More

For the cost of admittance, whether by annual pass or daily pass, Peninsula offers access to the best of Door County to everybody. The beach is awesome, as are the camp sites and bike/hike trails. Very well-kept and managed.

This is my pick for best state park in Wisconsin. Plenty of hiking and biking trails,great campsites close to everything Door County has to offer. The beach is also great with plenty of area to swim and relax. Shallow areas to pull your boat in and drop anchor.

We decided to hike during our stay which was the day after Thanksgiving. Upon entering the park, we talked to the park ranger to ask if deer hunting was allowed in the state park. She said "well yeah" as if we should have known better. We then asked if there were blaze orange clothing to wear and she said yes.... More
