Baileys Harbor:
Where Nature and Recreation Unite

Natural Beauty, Natural Fun in Baileys Harbor

With thousands of acres of preserved wilderness at The Ridges Sanctuary, Toft Point, and Kangaroo Lake Preserve, Baileys Harbor puts you at the door of a natural wonderland. Enjoy spectacular fishing, beautiful quiet beaches, and three iconic lighthouses.

But there’s more than nature here. With its own brewery, unique shops, shorefront lodging, great restaurants, and a long list of fun festivals, Baileys Harbor's charms are being discovered by more and more visitors. For more information, visit the Baileys Harbor Community Association page


Things to Do in Baileys Harbor

Baileys Harbor is connected to Door County’s natural elements in a way unlike other communities. The LEED-certified Nature Center of the acclaimed Ridges Sanctuary welcomes you at the north edge of downtown. Here you can visit iconic lighthouses or hike or snowshoe through old-growth forest and swales created by Lake Michigan centuries ago. All this, when you’re not busy on a water-sport adventure, fishing, or shopping for fine furniture and gifts.
