We took a tour of the park starting at the west end and drove through it and walked along the shore. The light house tour was excellent with views of the bay. We went up on the bluff for a great view. There is a nice golf course bordering on the bay and on our next trip, we are taking... More

Well this is a beautiful state park and our site was just a few steps to Lake Michigan I can't give it a full 5 rating. This is because the restrooms were very dirty. The women's had one of the 2 showers closed and the other shower ran cold water then extremely hot and it flooded while trying to take... More

I started going to this park when I took some friends camping for the first time when I was 18. Decades later this is still one of my favorite places in the US. Clean, beautiful, scenic, great roads and friendly park rangers. Always a great visit.

I love State Parks in general, and Wisconsin State Parks in particular. Even if you just take a drive through, you will enjoy spectacular views of the harbors, but hiking or biking a trail is even better. Unfortunately, the Eagle Tower was not open during this trip - we learned that it is going to be taken down because of... More

This is the only state park that I know of with a theatre and it was an excellent performance. The beach was great as were the hiking and biking trails.

Peninsula State Park is beautiful for a day trip or camp for a summer vacation. Beautiful view of Eagle Harbor. Great hiking and biking trails. Nice golf course. Great snowmobiling trails in winter. A must park to visit on a trip to Door Co. You can even rent a scooter at the entrance to the park if you want a... More

We have been camping in Peninsula for many many years and keep coming back for he sheer beauty of the place, the views of the water, the many hiking trails, the boat launch, it's our happy place. On the downside though: The bathrooms and showers are just filthy. The quickie cleaning job the "crew" does every morning is shameful. The... More

This park is beautiful. We visited two days in a row. There is a lot to see and do and a beautiful beach for your kiddos to enjoy. They have a camp store, beach, Eagle Tower, biking and hiking trails, and they are home to Northern Sky Theater. The best part is if you just want to enjoy a drive... More

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.

It was a last minute decision that brought us to Door County and Peninsula State Park. There is so much to do and see in the park. 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
