This is located in the State Park with a small entry fee. You can rent bikes or motorbikes or drive around the huge park. There are walking paths to explore with trails well marked. Also camping is available but book far ahead as it is a very popular and beautiful along the water. Not to be missed!

From what I am reading, this tower is closed now, what a great lose this will be. We visit the Peninsula State Park every time we go to Door County and stopping at the tower is a highlight of the visit.

This is the place to go in Door County on a clear day. If you can climb the tower, you will see such amazing beauty over the lake, the National Park, and beyond. Simply peaceful and gorgeous.

The tower is closed and it doesn't sound like they are going to rebuild, unless Gov. Walker can start to help out the state park system. It has been sad to watch all of the great programs and facilities be cut back and closed throughout the state.

The tower gives you a beautiful panorama of Green Bay and the islands off Peninsula State Park. However it has been closed because of a need for structural repairs and no funding available. This is the gem of the Wisconsin State Park System. The year before I was able to take some beautiful photos from the tower. I really wanted... More

Eagle tower is closed because it has outlived its life expectancy. You can see it, just can no longer climb it. Guess they need to find someone to donate the thousands of dollars it will cost to rebuild.

The tower is closed, but we had just climbed the tower at Potawatomi State Park so we were okay with skipping this climb. The tower is located right by the road so it's easy to locate. If you really want to climb a tower, go to Sturgeon Bay, Potawatomi State Park.

The park service has had to close the tower to visitors for safety reasons - so if this is the only reason you are going to the park its better to know it before you drive in. I spoke to a park ranger and there is no ETA on it opening and it may be torn down
