5 Things You Must Do at Cave Point County Park
Of the peninsula’s 19 county parks, Cave Point is definitely the diamond in the rough. Here are just a few reasons why the park deserves a spot on your Door County itinerary!
Beneath the waves of Lake Michigan, you’ll find fascinating underwater caves just waiting to be explored. These caves are the main attraction for scuba divers, but any visitor should be able to catch a glimpse of them from the cliffs.
The stunning wave-worn cliffs are a true sight to behold. The crumbling facade has awed thousands of visitors and starred in the work of many photographers and artists. During the winter, visitors who are willing to brave the cold will find the cliffs have been coated with a sparkling coat of ice! Plus, we guarantee the view of the sunset from the cliffs will steal your breath away.
Canoeing and Kayaking
Experienced paddlers love enjoying the view of the cliffs from a different vantage point. The 19-acre park provides plenty of space to explore from the water. It also allows you to find the underwater caves! Just be sure you choose this activity on a good weather day as the waves can become quite large during windy weather. Cave Point County Park kayak rental is available with Lakeshore Adventures.
A tranquil half-mile hiking trail winds through the park, allowing you to take a leisurely stroll while enjoying the water views. Nature enthusiasts love to take a walk through the park and find a wide variety of local birds and plant species along their journey.
