FISH CREEK – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is seeking public comments on two projects proposed for Peninsula State Park.
The Peninsula State Park Eagle Tower parking variance proposes to add additional parking and re-route or reconfigure access roads to expand capacity, improve public safety and alleviate congestion at Eagle Tower, Eagle Terrace and Eagle Panorama.
The proposal would add 100 new parking stalls, which may include oversized vehicle parking, to
provide access to Eagle Tower, Eagle Terrace and Eagle Panorama. READ MORE
The Peninsula State Park Eagle Bluff Lighthouse variance proposes to authorize additional developments at the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse to expand historical interpretation and provide additional amenities for visitors.
Improvements would include expanded parking and development of an accessible replica barn/seasonal (May to October) visitor center to serve as a resource for visitors not able to go into the lighthouse and
provide additional visitor services. READ MORE
Located on the west side of the Door Peninsula near Fish Creek, the 3,800-acre Peninsula State Park is one of Wisconsin’s top state park destinations, offering a wide variety of year-round outdoor recreation opportunities. Eagle Tower and Eagle Bluff Lighthouse are two of the park’s most popular attractions.
The plan would require variances to the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Regional Master Plan, which includes management for Peninsula State Park in Door County.
The public can review the draft variances by visiting the DNR’s Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Regional Master Plan webpage.
The public is encouraged to submit comments regarding the proposed variances to the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Regional Master Plan. Submit comments by Feb. 8, 2024 to:
