Just an average park with hiking trails. I'm sure it's great for Chicago people, but hardly anything special. There are nice views of the shoreline, but nothing special here either. The open air theater is remarkable and the hidden gem in the park. It is a special experience. If you want some amazing state parks, try Utah.

Hiking, biking, boating, golfing, swimming, paddle boarding, camping, relaxing...and the list goes on. We enjoy hiking and follow the trail to several different points within the park. Views are spectacular. If you're into... More

We love Peninsula State Park! It has everything for an enjoyable adventure! We bring our bikes! The park provides camping, biking, hiking and water sports. They also have a theater with evening productions. Bike and water sport rentals are available. We love every season at Peninsula Park. Cross country skiing is the best!

Eagle trail was nice, cool rock cliffs along the part that runs by the lake. I wouldn't recommend bringing young children as there are numerous rocks and tree roots in trail. Nice break from crowds and shops.

The last time I was here, I just went on a tour and saw some of the lookout points. This time, I went hiking with some friends and their kids. We didn't know how long the hike was going to be but we hiked about 3 miles. The hike was labeled difficult but it wasn't too bad. Everyone loved it.... More

I actually visited all 5 State Parks in Door County on this visit, and Peninsula continues to be one of my favorite State Parks in all of Wisconsin! There is so much to do within Peninsula State Park, and I was easily able to spend... More

We visited the park on a trolley tour & driving ourselves. Views were great from Sven's Bluff, Eagle Panorama, & Eagle Terrace. The terrace is has many steps but isn't hard to climb. Eagle tower is closed but our tour guide said there are plans to replace it (hopefully done fall 2017). Need to pay park fee per car but... More
