Cave Point County Park

Door County

As you watch waves explode into the caves beneath the shoreline cliffs here, you're likely to agree, nature is pretty amazing. There are great photo opportunities for shutterbugs and hiking and biking paths take you to gorgeous vistas. The bonus? Cave Point is off the beaten path and is less visited than its state-park siblings. It's also free.
