“You go to Door County for these reasons...”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

You go to DC to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life so no trip is complete without a walk, picnic, camping, bike ride,swim, boating or car ride thru the park. Some rental facilities for whatever you are looking for are located as you enter the park. It is peaceful and serene with all sorts of trails and guided maps throughout. There is a small theater that does production company shows if you have your bug spray and long pants during the dusk hours. There's a lighthouse to see, and a water tower to climb. If you're not adventurous to do this on your own, there are tours that take you in by trolly.

“spend a whole day here!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This park is huge! The hiking is amazing, especially the Eagle Trail as it takes you by the edge of the water and by the bluffs. Absolutely beautiful! The beach is small but still very nice. You can camp here as well, the campsites are huge and very clean!! Plan to make a day trip here if you are visiting Door County.

“Short or long hikes”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Peninsula state park is a BEAUTIFUL park, great hiking trails with breathtaking views. Drive through or go on a 1-6 mile hike, it's lovely! Also, most trails are 100% wooded....do pay attention to the levels of the hikes, if they say "difficult" it is!

“Awesome time ”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

My friends and I came here to go paddle boarding. The park itself is super pretty, the prices for rentals of kayaks, paddle boards, are very reasonable. For an hour of paddle boarding it's only $16. A two person kayak is $20. (Other places around the area were charging around $40) the workers who were renting the items were very helpful and nice! I would highly recommend coming here so many fun things to do!
