I'm spoiled for state parks of Wisconsin, having grown up in Door County until I was 10 years old. State parks were defined, to me, as Penninsula State Park and Pottowatomi State Park, both in Door County. We're talking miles of forested land, some forest very dense, other forest speckled with sunlight enough to see trillium between the trees, rock... More

It was just a very nice drive through the park for us! It was a beautiful day and everything was so so green! They had lots of little pull offs, with great views or little spots to the lake. Very lovely day for us! Would recommend for any family or couple, really anyone who loves nature!!

We have biked at Peninsula State Park many times. You can rent equipment at the shops just outside of the park entrance or bring your own. The Trails are marked and maps are available at the gate. Sunset Trail takes you through prairie, wetland, and forest. You can stop along the way to enjoy views of the bay and shoreline.... More

The history behind the park is a good part of the experience. The lighthouse, camping, trails for hiking and biking, beaches and water, premier golf, theater. This place simply has it all!

Up for the third year in a row - we barely left the park during the 8 days we were there! The concession has a surprisingly good variety of basics. It's a classic, but the effects of the loss of all state funding...

Hiking trails, biking trails (casual and single track), camping, kayaking/canoes, all in a beautiful setting at a great price. Only advice is if you are planning to camp you should book in advance although I think they hold a few spaces for last minute arrivals.

We hiked in the park a couple of mornings. The trails were nicely maintained. Especially liked the interpretive trail.

We rode around the park and stopped a few times at different look out points. Each area was so beautiful. The camp ground had many tents and pop up campers. Not many had electric. Nice and roughing it

We biked the Bay perimeter and then back across the central part of the park. Excellent bike trails and some in the interior are actually roads deep in the forest that are closed to vehicles. After a great lunch in Ephraim, we returned to the Kayak put in for a wonderful afternoon on the Bay. Beautiful place. Missed out on... More
