Cave Point

Acquired by the County of Door in 1943, this 19 acres of scenic beauty is open to the public until 11 pm daily. Well-known for its wave-worn limestone ledges, underwater caves and stirring view of Lake Michigan, the park is a popular attraction for residents and visitors alike. Fishermen, skilled scuba divers, photography buffs, and nature observers find the park a great delight. Facilities include picnic tables, cooking grills, fire rings, a well, toilets, parking space for twenty-five cars, and 900 feet of shoreline and ½ mile trail that links up with several miles of trails in the adjacent State Park. In 1997, the road through the park was blacktopped and the shore and circle trails were graveled. Restrooms were replaced in 2002 and solar powered lighting was installed. A historical sign describing the history of the formation of Cave Point was installed in 2003. Whitefish Dunes State Park borders the park on three sides.
