Cave Point

Years ago, when I first visited Cave Point County Park, I leapt from the limestone ledges of what was a coral reef millions of years ago into the seagreen waters of Lake Michigan. It was an unexpected thrill, nature’s dare, and I survived. When I visited again this July, there were no cliff jumpers, maybe due to the water being super cold.

I stood like a pine tree in the fading summer sun, and the beauty of this place, even though I had been there before, was still an unexpected thrill. There are three great state parks on the Door peninsula, but this free county park is the one true must-stop park for Door County visitors.
