Newport State Park, Door County, WI

img_3004

Another park we visited last September while on our weekend camping trip in Door County, WI was Newport State Park. This park is on the quiet side of the peninsula and the day we were there, it was almost totally empty. We had the beach to ourselves and saw nobody else on the hiking trails. We didn’t spend a lot of time here, but it was enough as this park doesn’t have as much to offer as Peninsula State Park on the other side of the county. A nice park, but not on my “must go to again” list.

Cave Point County Park, Door County, WI

During our annual fall camping trip (September, 2018–yes, I am behind in posting about our camping adventures), we went to Door County, WI. One of the highlights of the weekend was our stop at Cave Point County Park. It’s a small park, but full of beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the shoreline.

The girls had so much fun climbing the cliffs to the water

This cave is called the Devil’s Bathtub. There were a couple of people jumping and swimming in here. The water was fairly cold, since the lake never gets warm

This bird was sunning himself on the rocks. He sat there with his wings spread out for the longest time before taking off.
