A Taste of Door County Without the Crowds in Forestville

Located in Southern Door County, Forestville doesn’t burst with the attractions of its counterparts to the north, but there’s still much to do and see in this large farming community. Cyclists and runners will love the Ahnapee State Trail, a railway turned into a 30-mile crushed-stone path connecting Sturgeon Bay, Forestville, Algoma, and Casco.

Forestville Dam Park offers a boat launch and beautiful scenery in the 13-acre Mill Pond that leads into the Ahnapee River. A visit to the town of Maplewood brings you to classic small town drinking and dining, and the area’s rural roads are wonderful for road cycling. Learn more at
