Our annual fall camping trip in 2018 was to Door County again. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to go. We camped in Peninsula State Park. This large state park has so much to do. There’s a beach, a lighthouse, trails for hiking and biking, an outdoor theater (we were too late in the season to take in a show). And, it’s right in the heart of all there is to do in Door County.
We hiked on the Eagle trail this year. It’s probably the most difficult trail in the park. It goes down, right to the bay and then continues along the shore next to the bluffs. At times is was difficult to follow the trail, but we made it back up the steep climb at the end. Definitely worth the time to hike this one,
A huge part of camping is eating and campfires. Two family favorites for dinner are mac and cheese and pizza. We typically have some music playing, and with music comes dancing from my dancer daughter.
We did venture out of the park, too. A stop for breakfast at one of our favorite restaurants, Julie’s. It’s right by the entrance to the park. I’ve been coming to Door County for years and this was the first time I’ve actually seem the goats on the roof of Al Johnson’s Swedish restaurant.
After seeing the goats, we left the girls to shop in Sister Bay while we went to Cana Island lighthouse. The causeway connecting the island to the mainland was flooded, so we took the wagon over. The views are amazing from the top of the lighthouse.
A few other shots from our weekend. It was a Packer game Sunday, so the local bars were full of people watching the game. And, of course, a sunset.
