Spectacular! A must! If you do not stop at Cave Point Park, you will not truly know Door County!
OK. Where is Sevastopol you ask? Not one of your familiar towns in Door County? Head over to the Lake side, and head south on Hwy 57, past Baileys Harbor, then past Jacksonport. In a moment you will see a sign for Whitefish Dunes State Park, and Cave Point.
Follow the Cave Point signs and find one of the treasures in Door County (at the end of County WD)! This beautiful 19 acre park has picnic areas and rest rooms too. But the beauty is in the unusual rock formations that make up the “cave.” You have to be very careful here with kids, because there is a tremendous drop off with no fences o hold you back or tell you where to stop – so mind the little ones and mind yourself too.
There is a path that leads off to the left that will bring you to an area where you can “climb” down (really stop down) to a plateau of rock. From here, the vista is nice of the Green Bay waters. Closer up to the “cave” formation, you can see the waves lapping against the curved formation below. On a windy day, this is one great show! The waves aren’t lapping, they are crashing, and when they do, the water sprays all the way up the curved walls to the top where you are in a glorious show of force and beauty – a good 20 or more feet into the air! It looks like a 4th of July fireworks, only with crisp, crystal clear water! It is a wonderful experience.
The scene is just beautiful, with age-old rock formations, the smell of pine trees, sun and water – and the sound of the waves! Your senses will delight in this unique spot!
We have visited Cave Point is all seasons, and it is a site to behold in all. Cave Point is a photo opportunity and if you time it just right, you can catch a picture of yourself just when the huge spray is behind you! What a remembrance.
In winter, be especially careful of slippery rocks and ice formations – but the majesty of Cave Point covered in snow and ice is breathtaking too. In fall, with the trees changing, it is colorful and grand. Get a seasonal shot in all for seasons – then frame them up for a very special tribute to this Door County gem!
There are public restrooms and some picnic tables available, but come for the view which is just breathtaking. This is a must stop, which is a little out of the way, but take the time to enjoy this Door County Gem!
