We love Whitefish Bay Dunes State Park and you will too!

The state park is one of the Door County Parks system.  It is considered 1 of the 5 gems along with Rock Island State Park, Peninsula State Park, Newport State Park, Potawatomi State Park.

  1. The long beautiful beach is a great walk and goes on forever!
  2. The hiking trails are great and there are no bikes allowed.  Join our Door County Hiking & Photography tour if you want to find some more fun spots.
  3. Surfing and Kitesurfing, plenty of rip tides and you have to wait for the wind change with surfing.
  4. A great little event space for birthday parties and BBQ.  The cute cabin is right on the water and offers a great little space to retreat.
  5. The AUSTRALASIA shipwreck sits off of the Whitefish bay beach and can be seen on a clear day from a cave point county park kayak tour or Cave Point County Park scenic boat tour.
  6.  Winter Cross Country Skiing trails.
  7. Swimming, the lake takes till July to warm up, but as long as the wind doesn’t go off shore, the water stays warm.
