Frank E. Murphy County Park

Murphy Park is located on approximately fourteen acres of land at 7119 Bay Shore Drive, where County Hwy G or Horseshoe Bay Road intersects with Bay Shore Drive in the Town of Egg Harbor. The Park’s unique attractions include its sand beach, dock and boat launch along the shores of Green Bay. Facilities include a playground, volleyball court, picnic area, pavilion, parking and restrooms. In past years, the annual Door County Triathlon has been based from this park on a weekend day in late July.
