This park is located right next to sand dunes state park and you can walk from one to the other. At this park you can do some cliff jumping, kayaking, trail walking, and they have a quiet picnic area and our family liked this better than the peninsula state park which is the more popular one in door county.

It's a fairly small spot, but loads of fun when there is an East wind (northeast to southeast and anything in between). The right wind pushes big waves into the rock shoreline and causes some spectacular splashes and spray. Not many places in the midwest to see this, making it special for the mdiwest. You can walk on teh rocks... More

From where I visited, this had by far the best scenery although I did not see everything in Door County. I enjoyed this the most for the scenery. I would not recommend small unattended children or any children not being restrained here. Safety factors involved.

This is a great place to visit! We went on a day it had been raining earlier, and the waves were high and crashing into the shoreline. The trails have alot of branches sticking up from the ground to walk on, so it would not be easy if you are disabled. Nice picnic area. Bathrooms are pit bathrooms. The smell... More

This was one of my favorite stops on our vacation. It was just so blue and clear! We just kind of walked right along the shore from the park/parking lot until we basically got from the top of the cliff to the lake. And the was so nice, lots of rocks to stand on to get your feet wet! But... More

Enjoy nature at its finest. The ancient rock ledges of the Niagra Escarpement always provide photo opportunities. When the wind blows and the waves are high, the awesomeness of Mother Nature is breathtaking.

I visited on a Sunday and teens were in abundance jumping off a nearby rock bluff into the water below near a 'cave' entrance. They were having a blast, and I enjoyed watching them do so :). But what I really loved was hiking in both directions along the bluff seawall and enjoying the beautiful scenic wonders along the way.... More

Door County has many parks, including a few state parks and multiple county parks. This one is a little off the popular path on the Lake Michigan side of Upper Door County. It's right next to Whitefish Bay State Park. The state parks need permits, but the county parks are free. There are some great photo spots to be found... More

We chose to just visit Cave Point County Park and not the state park. This one is free. You can picnic here and walk the trails. It was fun to watch the cliff jumpers and walk along the shore and build rock sculptures. The water was surprisingly warm but I don't think you would swim here. Most people were just... More
