This is my third visit to this park since the new owners took over in 2011. They have invested a lot of "sweat equity" in cleaning up the grounds, trimming trees, cutting grass and the overall general appearance. If I owned the campground I would spend some time and money on the bathhouses. Spiders in the corners, water around the sinks, floor dirty. I noticed and pointed out several things, and the manager was appreciative. The problem is this: you must have an eye for noticing things that could be improved and I can tell you that the employees here do not have an eye for that. Examples: they have a fish windsock hanging on the entrance sign. It's in it's third season and faded: spend $25 bucks and present a good first impression. Paint the outside of the office building; repair the bathroom fixtures. The best thing about this campground is the location: close proximity to Fish Creek. The sites are decent and overall it improved greatly, time to take it to the next level. Has amazing potential! We camped here in a Tent.
This is our second visit to the formerly Path of Pines Campground. New owners and they seem to be wanting to make improvements. It is flat and easy to get around. Trees need to be trimmed to allow for easier access and open up the campground. They have no sewer sites but a dump station is available. No TV or 50amp. Most sites are pull-through with a few back-ins and tent site. The bath house floors get very wet so they need regular attention. The best thing going for this campground is its proximity to Fish Creek and Peninsula State Park: exactly one mile to the entrance of Peninsula State Park. We used our bikes for transportation and explored the area thoroughly. This is an OK place to stay but with a few updates could be awesome. We will return due to the proximity to Fish Creek. We camped here in a Motorhome.
From their web site: We will not be taking any reservations for this season. Our business plan has changed and we are honoring our contracts with existing full season campers from 08'. Therefore we will have no daily, weekly or monthly camping for 09'. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Path of Pines is located about a mile from Fish Creek on Cty Rd F. There is not a lot of activities located on the campground. Granted I stayed there in mid Oct. The small town makes up for the lack of things to do at the campground. Fish Creek has numerous shops and places to eat. Keep in mind it is normal Door county shopping and prices are high. Peninsula state park is near by and is worth spending some time looking at. Back to the campground. The owners were very nice and helpful. The bathrooms were kept very clean. Showers are free and had plenty of water pressure and hot water. Sites are very easy to get into. Overall its a good campground. I would like to see more things to do within the grounds though. If your looking to get away for a long weekend and a quiet place where you can get out and see some of Door county then I would recommend staying here. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This campground is located about 1 mile northeast of Fish Creek just off County Road F. The owners live on site and seem very nice. There are no full hookups, which seems to be common in this area. There is a sewer dump. Sites are mostly level with gravel drives and grassy lawns and fairly wide. Most sites have picnic tables. Because of the woods, very few sites are suitable for satellite dishes. Tell the owner upon check in. She knows which sites are more suitable. Campground in General: There are very few seasonal tenants. The bath house is centrally located, clean with good showers. There is a Laundromat in the back of the bath house. Pets are allowed. We had no issues with uncontrolled pets or barking. We paid $28/night and got electric and water where the SP you only get electric, plus we supported a local resident. There is no Wi-Fi, however, you can get DSL access at the Office/Store/Clubhouse or go to the library Wi-Fi hotspot next to the Post Office on Main Street in Fish Creek which is next to the Gallery of Gold. Access is fast and Free. You won’t find big box stores or national name hotels in this quaint little tourist area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice campground. The owners were very friendly and quite helpful in informing us concerning sites to see on the Door Penninsula. The campground is less than a mile from the state park. The State Park has a very nice paved bike trail and hiking trail. Great restaurants in the area. We highly suggest the fish boil at Pelletier's. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the gem of the Wisconsin State Park system, both for location and camping activities. There are five different campgrounds, two with electric hookups and three without. Fabulous hiking and biking in the park - well-marked trails. Busy in summertime - make reservations early! Decent showers but they were private, free, and had hot water. Be sure to check out the American Folklore Theatre inside the park (walking distance from Tennyson Bay Campsites) - they feature locally written, very enjoyable theatre under the stars appropriate for all ages - a highlight of camping in this state park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is located in a great location to see Door County. Sites are large but some had very little rock and all became a swamp when it rained. Mosquitos are a big problem---bring lots of spray. Restrooms/Shower rooms are old and some could use an update. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a difference a year makes. This park (along with other WI state parks) had some vintage and not-so-reliable electric posts. However, a recent state initiative has resulted in 50 amp upgrades to several state parks, including Peninsula SP. We camped in Weborg Campground which typically requires reservations a year in advance. Very private campground that is right on the lake. Verizon 4G service is good. Nearby Fish Creek has many shops and good restaurants. In fact, most of Door County itself is a destination. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in Weborg site #104: one of the best sites in the park as it has a direct view and access to Lake Michigan. There are only a handful of sites in Weborg which makes it very secluded and private for a state park. Plus, you're in walking distance of Fish Creek which has great shops and restaurants. We could not have asked for a better location. However, like many older Wisconsin state parks, the electric hookups can operate poorly, especially in bad weather: like we had during our stay at Weborg. After a rain storm we were unable to get an air conditioner running off our electric pedestal. And in 90 degree humid weather a great location was not enough to keep us here and we left early: after reserving the site a year in advance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped at site #103 in the Weborg loop of Peninsula State Park.. This is a 30 amp electric only site. We've camped here before in a smaller (35') Class A, but it was difficult maneuvering our 41-footer. We clipped several bushes and trees trying to get in and out of our site. Also, site #103 is not very level. We wanted to pull into the site with the front of out RV facing the lake, but could not do it as we would have been too out of level. So we ended up backing in. However, this loop of Peninsula SP is well worth it. The views are breathtaking. This park has superb hiking and biking trails. In addition Fish Creek is a short drive (or bike ride) away and has an abundance of restaurants and stores. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent location for visiting Door County. Many activities available within park: bike and boat rentals, hiking and biking trails, boat launch, nature center. In summer, there is live theatre performances. We stayed in Tennison Bay campground, one of several in the park. Sites were large, level, shady. Would definitely stay here again. The "pad" for the RV/trailer is dirt, not gravel. It rained the first night, so we had a mud puddle. Then it dried out and got very dusty. Good showers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful state park in Door County, close to shops and restaurants. Very busy during the summer and fall. There are many miles of trails for hiking and biking. Have enjoyed every one of our visits but the quiet off season times are the best for enjoying the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Door County is a wonderful place with a wonderful State Park. Showers were clean and so were the rest rooms. Lots of biking trails. Great place to see a sunset. Will be back later this year. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Beautiful park. Not as many activities as your standard "themed" park. I wish the park had a water hook up, but there are sites that you can fill up your tank before you get to your site. Fish Creek is nice but make sure you bring plenty of money because it is expensive. Overall it's a nice park with lots of views. If you want to go hiking or mountain bike riding then it's a great place. I went with my parents who are not able to do these activities so it wasn't as good for us. I would return for the fishing though. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Absolutely beautiful, very wooded. Nice beach area but parking near beach can become limited, try to take your bikes. This is a wonderful area for those who want to experience nature through camping, biking, hiking, and swimming. Watch out if you have a very large camper, this place is heavily wooded. Check out the bat house at night. Oh, and the fried onion rings in the beachside deli were great, nice and fat! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the premiere state park in Wisconsin. There is tons of things to do including, 30 miles of bike trails, many paved, swimming at the beach, light house tours, hiking, boat rentals, etc. Stayed in Tennison Bay site 304e which was very private. The next door sites were 30 yards away with bushes in between. Right outside the park is all of Door County with fish boils, cherry tours, mini golf, etc. Would definitely come back. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We just loved this park. We stayed in South Nicolet Bay Campground (764E) for 4 nights and Tennison Bay (438E) for 2 nights. We preferred Nicolet Bay due to the proximity to the swimming area. Also, the sites seemed a bit more private there as well. The bathroom and shower buildings are due for replacement as they do not compare to the buildings in the Michigan State Parks. We will be back in the future. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Had a great time here. Stayed in the Nicolet Bay section of the park. A lot of sites close together but were separated well with a lot of trees. Easy to back into sites with a 30' travel trailer. Had a great weekend! An affordable way to spend a weekend in Door County and avoid all the people. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is my very favorite campground. I've camped here in the spring and fall, with plans to go back this summer. If you require full hookups, this or any Wisconsin state park isn't for you. But if you truly like to camp, it doesn't get better than this. hiking and biking trails galore, gorgeous scenery. Swimming, fishing, boating, golfing, and even an outdoor theater in the summer months. Add the fact that it's in Door County which alone is a treasure, and this makes Peninsula our favorite destination. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great location for exploring Door County. Very good bike trails. If you like an open camp site in which you can see the clouds, sky, etc., this may not be for you as it is heavily wooded with little visibility other than the trees. Surcharge fee for non-residents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful bike trails, hiking, fishing, boating and sand beach on Green Bay. The lovely tourist town of Fish Creek 1/2 mile from park entrance. Easy bike ride to town from campground. Very well maintained with large, wooded campsites. Plenty of activities in campground. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very large park on the western side of Door County peninsula. 4 main campgrounds offer a good variety of camping experiences, from smaller tent sites to large electric sites, and many in-between. Many are situated in the forest with good shade cover and privacy. The park itself is terrific for bike riding, hiking, and walking along the pebble beach. Conveniently located near Fish Creek where you can partake in the traditional Door County fish boil dinners at many of the local restaurants or browse the many interesting shops for nicknacks. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
