  • If you are out and about this winter, don't overlook the State or County Parks. Now is the time to visit if you like unspoiled scenery and little foot traffic. Cave Point Park, will not disappoint on ...  more »
  • Cave Point is always pretty, but it's breathtaking with the ice! There was even an ice chunk on the trail where water had come up and frozen. I asked multiple people where to go to see pretty sites in...  more »

  • If you're in Door County, and you've never been to cave point, be sure to make it a priority! Cave Point has long lakeside trails and wonderful trails in the woods. A great hiking spot, and even better snowshoeing spot! The sightlines are absolutely stunning, and in the winter there's nothing like seeing the ice formations that are everywhere you look!
  • My friend and I went in late November (though unseasonably mild!) in the last hour or two of daylight. There were only a couple of other people around, and it often felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. My friend was somewhat underwhelmed, as he thought he would be able to go *into* a cave, but the waves crashing against the rocks and caverns made for some spectacular splashes and booming percussion. We were also treated to a remarkable sunset, which lit the water in a way that resembled fire, with the leaping droplets looking like flames.
  • Great little park with incredible rock cliffs along the water. Great photography location. Water off the lake creates BIG waves that have cut the cliffs and cut out caves and little inlets into the rocks. There is a ledge that you can climb down to when the waves are low to swim and see and photograph the cliffs. The daring can dive off the cliffs into deep cut rock pools... be careful, but it is SOOO fun! If you want to swim or dive, go in late summer when the water might be warm enough to get into without getting hypothermia. Road in is long, winedy and poorly maintained, but beautiful itself.
  • Went here after I left the federal park down the street in disgust. (The federal park was expensive and we just wanted to stop for a few min to check it out) The county park was gorgeous, expansive and did I mention gorgeous?! There are no fees to park or walk around. I will be going here next time I’m in the area.
  • Very beautiful views of Lake Michigan and you get to see some gorgeous bluffs as well. The park itself is a must see for anyone who is traveling around Door County. It's also very close to the dunes state park which is also a great place to check out.
