We chose to begin our visit to Door County with a 4 hour tour that featured the lighthouses. This was our favorite! We were given a tour and lots of history and we still had time to explore the area and take photos.

We didn't pay to tour the inside. The outside was nice, with a nice view nearby. Gigantic anchor outside.

The light house was closed when we arrived, but it was still nice to take a few pictures around the light house and look at the beautiful view of the lake. The parking lot does get a little crowed so be careful for pedestrians when...More

Judy was great giving the history and tour of the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse. It's amazing to think that a large family actually lived in the small house so many year ago. You will enjoy the story about the family and all the things they endured.

The distance from the parking lot to the lighthouse is not very far, however taking the tour does require standing for an hour and you must be able to climb stairs. I hope this is not a limitation for you. Sincerely, Trudy... More

Unfortunately, as a historic site, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse has limited accessibility. Currently the only room that is accessible is the winter kitchen. Trudy Herbst, Executive Director

My husband and I (ages48,53) are taking his mother (age 73) to Wisconsin August 4-9. It is the last of her lower 48 states to mark off her list. None of us have ever been to Wisconsin and want to get a feel for the history and uniqueness of the land and residents. During the summer, I know most things revolve around enjoying your warm weather and vacations center around enjoying the water; however, we are from Florida and so warm weather and water/beach are what we have all year and isn't...More

You're trying to do way too much in too little time, and it's way too spread out. For example, your day 3 is at least 6 hours of driving alone. Washington Island will add at least 3 hours to that.

First, thanks to Trip advisors. So much good info and advice. My granddaughter and I made a quick Door County trip. What a beautiful area! All of the towns are very clean and have flowers everywhere. We stayed in Sturgeon Bay at Super 8. We went to Peninsula SP-saw Eagle Bluff lighthouse and climbed the tower. This a great park for campers. We saw eagles and wild turkeys. We then went to Cana Island Lighthouse. It's a beautiful location. We climbed to the top. Great view and museum. The only...More
