I was lucky to get here when Green Bay was frozen over and took pix that looked like they were from Antarctica. Do make sure to buy the parking pass though because I misunderstood the signs and was ticketed for almost $50 within 20 minutes of getting there! Fortunately, the rangers were good enough to explain what I missed so... More

Kids had a blast playing on the ice by the beach. Did some hiking and enjoyed the beauty of the ice that had frozen on the trees

The best thing about Door County in my opinion is the beautiful state parks! Our favorite is Peninsula State Park with all it's hiking trails and Nicolette Bay beach for swimming and picnicking. We have to keep supporting our state parks!

My husband and I biked through the park from Fish Creek to Ephraim. It was fall, the leaves were beautiful, and the biking trails were free. Many trails to bike on, and several scenic places to stop. Great way to spend the day! While we did not golf, the course at the park also looks pretty good.

Door County is one of our all-time vacation spots, and Peninsula State Park is at the top of our list of favorite places in the Door. We take our bicycles (with dog baskets) with us, and always manage one or two bike rides, as well as a hike (or two) through the woods. The park is always a favorite for... More

It had snowed the day before I arrived in Fish Creek so I took a drive through the Park and it was simply beautiful. It was single digit weather but I did stop and hike some in the snow just to get a few views and nice photos. This is probably my favorite park no matter what time of the... More

Lots to do here, even in off season. Plenty of places to hike and cross country ski. Camping and boating in the summer with the amenities of Door County. Ice fishing options in the winter.

Beautiful State Park. Many things to see here. If you have time, come at night and watch the bat houses as the bats depart... it's crazy fun. Beautiful overlooks, fun to scoot around, lovely golf course, very nice camping spots, great swimming and trails.
