In Wisconsin’s Peninsula State Park—named after the 2,000-square-mile peninsula that makes up Door County—scenery and amenities abound in equal parts. Outdoor lovers will appreciate the park’s 38-acre island, numerous hiking and biking trails, and year-round activities—but for many, the park’s main draw is the 18-hole Peninsula Golf Course, located on prime real estate overlooking Eagle Harbor.
The park features six separate campgrounds totaling to more than 700 campsites, meaning RVers, car campers or backcountry campers will find a place to stay. Many of the sites are situated between the golf course and the picturesque Eagle Bluff lighthouse, another major attraction for visitors.
In the warm weather months, visitors can swim in Lake Michigan’s Green Bay, rent kayaks, canoes and other useful water tools from the concession stand, and of course, play on the renown golf course, just feet from your campsite. The colder months bring a whole new level of excitement for camping in the park, as campers can snowshoe, cross-country ski, or simply explore the snowy sand dunes, crashing waves, and frozen forests that make up this park.
This park is highly sought after. Electric and non electric sites available, if you are camping RV style , you may want to check out the site you would like to reserve to be sure it will accommodate your vehicle. Beautiful park, to hike, bike and explore. If you book at different times of the year, you will see The Park, change with the seasons, different blooms through out the park. Different wild life, you are usually going to spot at least one species during your stay.
Beautiful campsites, great golf course and ferry ride away to Washington Isle!
Nicolet Bay Large campground, but easy water access, amenities reduced come mid Sept. but lovely in the fall - water front sites don't have water or electric - Park is great for hiking, and biking and proximity to what Door Co has to offer. -
If you're looking for bells and whistles, lots of amenities and lots of friendly neighbors in close proximity, this is the place to go! We stayed in south nicolet bay and had a cute little path that gave us direct access to the bay. We did lots of hiking, explored the nature center, swam, enjoyed a show at their outdoor amphitheater, visited the historic lighthouse, and rented bikes with a burley trailer for my two year. They had both adult and kid helmets too. The snack shack by the main swimming area had lots of meal and snack options for when I didn't feel like cooking. The water by our campsite was rocky but the main beach area was sandy and shallow for a ways out. The campsites are close together but the people are so nice and campsites and bathrooms kept clean. There were both flushing bathrooms with showers and smaller more frequent outhouses with pit toilets. We hiked the minnehaha trail from our campsite and did the eagle trail loop which while rated difficult was really manageable for most of the trail and my two year who hikes frequently with hike it baby enjoyed doing many sections of the trail on his own two feet. I did bring my soft structured carrier as well. There area a couple steep inclines, and one area of scrambling over boulders but tons of impressive views and an easy to follow trail. There was some poison ivy by our campsite but plenty of signs to warn campers where to expect it. There was a nice size campfire pit and picnic table at our site as well. The campsites on weekends get booked up months in advance and even on weekdays there are slim pickings for last minute camping adventures in the summer months. It's a very popular Wisconsin destination!
This Campground in fish creek is in an ideal location. The wild tomato pizzeria is at the entrance to the park and a definite must stop. Went in October and did a door County ghost tour and walked around and looked at shops and had an amazing time At the door county fish boil. This is a must experience for everyone!!
The campground in general is pretty fantastic. However, there is a loop of campgrounds in Nicolet Bay that, if you are lucky enough to reserve them, better than any campsite in the state. The trails and beach offer something for everyone. We’ve camped here before kids and with kids, and were never bored.
Peninsula State Park is a 3,776-acre park in Door County. The trails are extensive and fun for hiking, running, and biking. The camping areas are nice with plenty to do around the park. There's even a golf course and harbor! My favorite place is the historic lighthouse that sits on the bluff. If you enjoy hiking and trail running which is what I was there for this is a must go!
A great state park.
Great for car camping and a weekend away. lots of cool family hiking and beach with snack shack. *poison ivy is present.
Beautiful park with an awesome beach! They serve food and rent out kayaks and paddle boards! The sites are nice sites. You have to walk a ways to the beach but totally worth it. The bike trails are awesome
