We left early with heavy breakfast from our Hotel to visit this place. When you get close to this park their are lot of twists and turns which needs to keep the speed in said limit. Also the GPS stops working like 1 mile before this place but Not a problem as GPS works when arriving at this place but... More

Nice park to see the underwater caves - you can walk along the waterfront and along a woodsy walking trail. Not groomed and can be dangerous - not for small or unsupervised children. While the rock formations people made were cool - they are damaging to the coastline (erosion-control) and there have been requests to not build these.

We came on a recommendation from my wife's sister and she was so right. The cliffs overlooking Lake Michigan give a nice view of the waves crashing into the various coves. Standing on the outcroppings you can feel the thunderous crashing of the waves underneath your feet. Stand to close to some of the edges and you may get wet.... More

My wife and I were touring Door County and stopped here after receiving a recommendation form the Visitor Center in Sturgeon Bay. I can not say enough about this place. We came on a Fall afternoon when the temp was in the high 40's with a brilliant blue sky. Took many photos with my camera (as well as with multiple... More

Cave Point is a short drive from Sturgeon Bay and should not be missed. The park is free and parking is nearby. So is the lake so be sure to watch your little ones VERY closely. We were there when the waves were crashing against the rocks, but I bet it is beautiful in calm, sunny weather as well. If... More

Cave Point Park is easy to find and worth the stop. The point is just a short walk from the parking lot although the path has lots of roots and the rocks can be slippery when they're wet. It was a windy day when we went so the waves crashing on the rocks were awesome. It's no place for kids... More

Cave Point County Park is just on the north side of the Whitefish dunes park. It has some great wave action with the limestone tables underneath creating blow backs and neat sounds. Was surprisingly busy for a Monday morning, but decent sized parking lot and an outhouse.

Beautiful county park hidden off the main highway, but well worth the drive. Once you get to the park, head to the lake where you'll see wave upon wave crashing into the bluffs! Nice hikes in the woods, following the lake is great. There's also a place next to the water, if you go left when you first start, where... More

This park was really beautiful - but be careful. Do NOT let your children run around unsupervised. There are cliffs right down to the lake and to rocks below. Lots of tree roots that you can trip over. There was one special place with what I called a Rock Fairy Garden. it was really cool. We were there in the... More

A great experience. It was very windy when we visited and the waves were coming up over the cliffs. It was incredible to see! We would definitely visit again
