where nature
and recreation unite

Enjoy all the activities Lake Michigan has to offer

Baileys Harbor, the only town on the lakeside of the peninsula, offers fishing, water sports, boat tours, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and more. From the warm waters of Kangaroo Lake to the lure of Lake Michigan and the calmer harbor in between, it's a water-lover's paradise! Visit thousands of acres of wilderness and public land, including the Ridges Sanctuary, Toft Point, parks and beaches. Lighthouse-lovers have plenty to see here, with access to or views of three of Door County's 11 lighthouses, including Cana Island Lighthouse, one of the most iconic and photographed structures in the county. For more information, visit the Baileys Harbor Community Association page.
