Wisconsin Adventure Family

Potawatomi State Park!

Its official Wisconsin adventure Family has been to 27 state parks, Potawatomi was the last Park of the year to camp. Wisconsin has 52 state parks, We did our homework when we moved here and we have been able to check off the list by going to these awesome parks to hike or camp. Our goal is to finish the rest in 2019.

There are several hiking trails at the park. We got up in the morning and hiked to the Tower (3.6 miles) This trail takes you to the site of the old observation tower on the highest bluff in the park. The trail loops through the park and also goes through the campground. Parking and restrooms for the trail are available at the old tower site. We couldn’t climb up to the tower since it was closed. But we still had fun it wasn’t busy at all we meet a few hikers on the Ice Age Trail. This is family-friendly, our adventure Baby was able to hike most of the way, we always bring a carrier to give her a break, and carrying her makes my back strong double workout.

Potawatomi State Park has family and group campsites and an accessible cabin for people with disabilities. this map below might be helpful if you’re planning a trip to the park.

The park is open year-round, 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. The park is named in honor of the tribe that inhabited Green Bay’s shores and islands when Europeans first settled in the area. The tribe called themselves Bo-De-Wad-Me which means “keeper of the fire.” Eventually, the spelling and pronunciation were changed to Potawatomi.
