All reviews waves crashing lake michigan on the rocks the cliff door county beautiful county tree roots be careful watch your step climb down breathtaking views rocky beach picnic tables wave action both directions beautiful spot small children
Many visits over the past 20 years, exciting waters, breathtaking views. During winter gusts of wind cause waves to crash against the bluffs, if you are standing in the right spot the ground actually trembles. Frightening and exciting at the same time!
We visited on a sunny weekday morning and hiked the beautiful rocky shoreline for over an hour. The cave inlets were very noisy as the waves came crashing in. The water was crystal clear and there were several outcroppings where you could get photos and...More
Very cool place to see some very dramatic Lake Michigan scenery. The loud boom of the waves as they crash into the caves can be heard when you are driving up. There is a nice little path to walk on along the rocky lakeshore. They...More
We visited Cave Point Park for the first time! It provided a scenic view of Lake Michigan’s waves crashing below us against the rock walls. This is a place for adults and older teens, but not for young kids!! There is no railing and those...More
Park was unbelievably beautiful. Rock formations and the lake were breathtaking. Very glad i brought a DSLR camera with me! This is a must-see when in Door County, which was eluded to me by a local when i asked about family friendly things to do....More
We are coming up to Door County for the first time at the end of July to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary. I have a couple questions that I thought I could just combine in one post: 1) What are the best moderate length/difficulty hikes on the peninsula, preferably some that afford awesome views? I have looked into Peninsula State Park and Cave Point County Park, but specifically are there trails there that you would recommend? We are regular hikers up for hikes of probably no more...More

Murphy Park just south of Egg Harbor on the bay side and Whitefish Dune State Park on the lake side. For a really nice romantic dinner on your anniversary I would choose the Waterfront in Sister Bay. Try to time your reservation about a half hour before sunset. Enjoy your trip.

Itinerary is still tentative and has some holes. Would love any input as far as logistics/timing/things that aren't reasonable to do in the time allotted. Quick background: First time to DC.

Not interested in seeing a play, seeing movies, visiting museums on this trip. Dates July 22-27 Day 1 (Friday): We will arrive...More

Wow, I'm tired just reading this! Best beach would be Egg Harbor or Sister Bay. Place to provision is Main Street Market in Egg Harbor. I would move Washington Island to day 5. That way you could do the drive around and exploring stuff and you might decide to do more of that rather than the island. You need to do a fish boil at Pelletiers, the Bayside Bar is right across from the Thorpe House so drop in there. I know you are not interested in a play, but I would strongly suggest...More

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
