A must visit, if you like white sand beaches. Several nice hikes, or just stroll along the beach. Can be a bit cool if a strong East wind. Do have to pay, as this is a state park.

Whitefish Dunes State Park is sometimes overlooked, as it is on the less traveled side of Door County. Don't miss it...views are gorgeous. It's not to be missed.

This state park on the shoreline of Lake Michigan boasts the largest sand dunes in Wisconsin. The view of this Great Lake is spectacular. It is the largest of the Great Lakes and at this park it is only 124 miles across to lower Michigan.

Beautiful Views. A must stop when in Door County. Off the beaten path but well worth it. Wear your hiking shoes, and be ready to take them off when you get to the beach.

A beautiful area with soft, warm sand and a magnificent expanse of lake to explore. The waters nearest to the beach are of course not overly deep, and those with children can relax on the beach whilst keeping their young ones in full view and...More

We kayak toured past this park on the cave point tour that Door County Kayak Tours hosts. It is one of the largest beaches in Door County and is quite beautiful.
