Whitefish Dunes State Park

Whitefish Dunes State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This short and sweet trip has a great sand beach and some very good examples of the limestone cliffs that Door County is known for, including several stone grottos and caves. The clear but intensely green water contrasts with the white sand and gray rock, making the scenery wonderfully rich in color.

The gently sloping beach at the start of the trip is good for surf if the wind is right, but see Cautions about the rip current at the north end of the beach. There is a shoreline trail if conditions are too rough to visit the cliffs by water."

We put-in south of Whitefish Dunes at the boat launch in Valmy. A Foggy 70 degree calm day. Perfect for exploring the Sea Caves of Cave Point County Park, which is about a mile North of Whitefish Dunes. One can only enter the caves on a calm day unless you want a headache as the head to roof clearance varies from 6 inches to several feet. The water was clear as we watched schools of Alewives swim beneath us occasionally being attacked by Caspian Terns and Herring Gulls. It was a Great paddle, but remember the caves are only safe to enter on calm days without any swells.
