We ended up here only because we missed the entrance to the State Park. We were suprised by how busy this location is. Come to find out the only way into the State park is to purchase an annual pass online. This explains why so many people were coming to this park. Based on the number of people walking down the trail with towels I suspect they head to the state park after parking here.

I was a little suprised by how busy this park was. The road was almost blocked due to all the people parking along an already narrow road. The sites were cool as you get to see and hear caves that have been created by the waves of the lake. These are fairly famous caves.

Overall and to sum it all up, sitting and listening to the waves our son looks at us and says "this is the most peaceful sound". It is funny that the waves are creating all kinds of chaos and he found peace in it.

Definitely worth a visit! Initial views right at the parking lot are OK, but the views as you continue the trail south along the lake front were gorgeous (crowds also thin a bit). Recommend going in the afternoon for some awesome light on the rocks. Good amount of parking available.

We went to Cave Point the day after an overnight storm and the day we went had high winds. Turns out this is the BEST time to go! The turbulent waters and high winds made for a SPECTACULAR show of waves crashing into the rocks! We eperienced several sprays that went well over our heads and even soaked us a few times. It was a wonderful experience and one of the highlights of our stay in Door County.

I recently spent part of a couple different days at Cave Point County Park in Door County on my summer trip to this area, and it left me asking why I had never taken the time to stop here before?! This is a small but very beautiful county park, and best of all is that it is FREE with being only a county park! There are some wonderful views of Lake Michigan, and the rock formations are amazing. This is right near Whitefish Dunes State Park, which I have gone to a few times now, but somehow I had always overlooked the adjacent Cave Point. It is popular to jump off the high cliff into the water, but I just had fun watching people do that--I wasn't quite brave enough LOL. This was a good spot for a picnic lunch, too, but the biting flies started to get just slightly irritating later. This is a beautiful park in Door County, and I would recommend taking some time to stop here. Do watch out if you are coming from the Baileys Harbor/Jacksonport direction to come here, however, as I hit a bad pothole on Cave Point Road very close to the park, which resulted in a flat tire on my vehicle:(. The tire shop back in Sturgeon Bay told me that I was about the 15th person who said they had this happen there recently, so that road really needs to be fixed! At least I had the beautiful sight of Lake Michigan to look at until help arrived for the tire near dusk on Tuesday night! Otherwise, this is a great place to be and very beautiful!

My family discovered this treasure accidently as we were traveling through Door Co. looking @ Lighthouses. Nothing that day was a breath taking as the cave area. As U strolled along the trails U could hear echoes of Lake Michigan splashing onto the caves below. The water was so blue it looked like sky. We observed lucky explorers N kyacs traveling back into the caves. This is an area that should not B missed & B sure 2 bring a camera,

This was our first visit to Cave Point in the winter and it did not disappoint! The water driving into the bluffs from Lake Michigan freezes into beautiful formations, in some cases even enveloping trees and bushes along the shores. If you go in winter, please be careful as the area at the top of the bluffs where you most want to go to look over is very slippery. Boot cleats or spikes are highly recommended. Do NOT let children or pets roam free.

We spent 6 days in Door County & saw a lot of things. Cave Point was BY FAR MY FAVORITE. I'm not really an outdoorsy, hiking type person. The lake flies were annoying (I think that only happens in May and this year was particularly bad we were told) but other than that, the sights, sounds & scenery were SIMPLY AMAZING. I could've stayed ALL day. We also heard it's absolutely gorgeous in any / every season. I hope to visit in the Fall or Winter one day. Make sure it's on your list if you're in the area!

Finally visited on this trip and don't know what took me so long. We took a nice hike along the cliffs and enjoyed wonderful views of the lake. Next time we'll walk the other way to Whitefish Dunes State Park

Parked right near the trails. If you’re bringing kids hold onto them as there are STEEP drops! Great photo opps and a fun and rather easy nature trail along the water. Water has beautiful colors and I’d imagine even more colorful on sunny days.

We came here on an unplanned stop after seeing how much it cost to get to the state park right next to it. This county park is FREE, and amazing! The sights were beautiful- it was a windy day and it was cool to sea the large lake waves crash into rock. There are a few informative signs to learn more about the science and history side to the park. A must do!!
