Potawatomi State Park on the shore of Sturgeon Bay in southern Door County, has 1,200 acres of gently rolling upland terrain bordered by steep slopes and rugged limestone cliffs. Over two miles of shoreline provide many scenic views and recreational opportunities. A 75-foot observation tower rises above the forest canopy giving a panoramic view. On a clear day, the view from the park's observation tower reaches 16 miles across Green Bay.

The tower has been closed permanently. There were some beautiful look outs on this hike.

A family friendly trail! Not meant to be a real challenge. Some rewarding views. Walking along the lake is pleasant. Worth the visit! Just wish the tower was accessible

Great trail system and awesome bay area views! Don't forget the bug spray, and make sure to download the park map from the DNR website because that has more of the nitty gritty trails in it.

I run through this park almost every day and every time, it’s even more beautiful than the last. There are great wooded trails to explore, hidden caves, eagle sightings and breathtaking sunsets with the bay view. Everyone says that Peninsula State Park is the best of Door County, but I disagree. This park is much better, not to mention less tourists!

Good forest trails, including one of the terminus points for the Ice Age Trail. Lots of rocks in the soil provide uneven trail tread, so plan on wearing hiking boots instead of gym shoes. Beautiful state park and forest.

What a splendid park! The diversity of species is quite amazing. You can choose your trails (beginners, interm, advance...etc), have gone back already and will continue to as well!
