The One Spot In Wisconsin That’s Basically Heaven On Earth
Maybe it’s because it’s a county park and not a state one, but too few folks know about this gem of a park tucked along the Lake Michigan shoreline in Sturgeon Bay. Lots of tourists will head to nearby Whitefish Dunes State Park, but to stop there would be a shame.
The shoreline at Cave Point is pretty enough on its own to require a trip.
The area is popular with scuba divers, kayakers and canoeists, as folks want to get a better look at the formations years of erosion have created.
The cliffs can be a bit dangerous, so caution is advised. But the short trek to the coastline is worth it to view the power and beauty of Lake Michigan.
But a trip here doesn't have to be scary. Sometimes it's worth it just to experience a beautiful sunrise and the crystal blue water that hugs the shore.
The cliffs and caves showcase a different, though no less gorgeous beauty in the winter.
Windy conditions and violent waters can create some amazing frozen formations.
And sometimes the ice is just another great foil for the stunning blue of the water.
The wind and waves have battered the shoreline for years and when a storm is brewing and churning up the water, the sound of the waves crashing in the caves is thunderous.
Beyond this view, the park has a great set of paved biking trails and the walking trails are covered in gravel and easy to traverse.
Pack a picnic or plan to use one of their fire pits to have lunch and do some bird watching.
Both short and long paths wind through the park, making this a great path for all ages and abilities.
Whether you're a photographer looking to capture nature's beauty or just someone who loves to contemplate the world, this little gem of a park is well worth the drive.
Sit along the cliffs and watch the water ebb and flow.
