Wisconsin's third-largest state park, Peninsula State Park, draws around one million visitors each year -- and it's not hard to see why!
For many visitors, the highlight of the park is the fact that it boasts eight miles of Green Bay shoreline. Whether you're fishing for smallmouth and rock bass, boating, canoeing, kayaking, or going for a swim, there's no shortage of water-based activities to enjoy.
But there's a whole lot more to see and do throughout the park. For example, you could take a historical tour of the 1868 Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, enjoy a bite to eat at one of the park's six picnic areas, play volleyball or tennis, tackle the 18-hole golf course, or let the kids loose in one of three playgrounds.
There's also an extensive network of hiking and biking trails throughout the park, with cross-country skiing and snowmobiling popular in the winter months. The 2.2-mile Nicolet Bay Trail provides convenient beach access, while the 2-mile Eagle Trail takes in 150-foot cliffs and offers a more strenuous challenge.
Peninsula State Park is home to five campgrounds, with the Weborg Point Campground found in the park's southwestern corner. It features 12 electric sites and a shower and restroom facility.
Pets are welcome at the Weborg Point Campground, which also offers access to an accessible fishing pier. It's also quieter and a little more relaxed than some of the park's larger, busier campgrounds, so it's well worth reserving a site here if you prefer the peace and quiet.
Daily vehicle admission stickers cost $8 for cars with Wisconsin plates, or $11 for visitors from out of state.
If traveling with your pet, make sure you stick to all posted rules about dog-friendly areas. Pets are not permitted in picnic, beach, or playground areas, in park buildings, or on cross-country skiing or nature trails. Your pooch will need to be leashed and under control at all times, and you'll be required to clean up after your dog whenever necessary.
