Description

Potawatomi State Park is a beautiful combination of rolling hills, steep slopes, and unique limestone cliffs. Located on the shore of Sturgeon Bay, this 1,200 acre park draws outdoor lovers with two legs and four. So, grab the leash and head over for a pawsome day of fun!

Although it is a hub for water sports, this park also has plenty to do on dry land. For a nice warm up, follow the half mile Ancient Shores Trail. Take time to read the interpretive signs so your pup can learn all about the three ancient shorelines and local wildlife. The Hemlock Trail clocks in at 2.6 miles. A portion of this hike runs along the water’s edge, so your pal will enjoy some lakefront scenery. If your pooch wants a puptacular view, hop on the Tower Trail. It winds up the highest bluff in the park to the site of an old observation tower.

Potawatomi State Park is home to the eastern trailhead of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. This trail stretches an impressive 1,000 miles and follows the edge of the last continental glacier in Wisconsin. It’s a favorite among backpackers. But if your pup prefers a day hike, just follow the 2.8 mile segment that wanders through the park’s boundaries.

Biking, fishing, and boating are all pupular activities at the park. A boat launch is available in Sawyer Harbor and canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats can be rented. Since the shores are rocky, there is not a swimming beach in the park, but you may spot a SCUBA diver or two exploring the bay. If your pooch wants to stay the night, grab one of the sites in Daisy Field Campground. Tents and RVs are welcome.

While out and about in the park, don’t forget to pick up after you pup and always have water on hand. This is definitely one park your pooch will want to visit again and again!
