I requested that my fire pit be cleaned before i took the site she [park host] said she called the park ranger. i waited 1/2 hr for him to clean it and returned to find piles of ashes in it and 1 broken beer bottle buried in the ashes

A reasonably priced campground within an attractive county park. Book a site in this county park because Wisconsin state parks appear to currently require purchase of an annual admission pass which is only a good deal if you will visit often.

As a tent camper, I need a bathhouse with showers, toilet and sink. Theoretically these exist here but not in a practical way. One small bathouse is currently closed due to COVID. The big bathhouse has what I need but is only open 9AM-6PM to allow for disinfection which really turns it into a large toilet for all intents. The only facility open 24/7 was a unit with one male and one female toilet. Overwhelming chemical smell!!

Nice recreational playground and for kids.

OK if you have an RV but otherwise you should check out other options.

I came to this park because I heard that it has a trail under the Niagara Escarpment - my ever favorite feature in Door County and beyond. Sure enough - the trail weaves its way under the Escarpment, and it's a treat to enjoy on a hot summer day (there is always coolness next to the dolomite wall of the Escarpment).

We tent camped here for the weekend of the Packers vs Bears game and had an amazing experience. The campground was clean and quiet. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean, probably because most people who camp are in RVs by this time of year. Either way, hot showers while we we got ready for the game was a bonus I hadn't expected. We were able to call an Uber to get to Lambeau which worked out perfectly. Cost about $60 each way but better than parking or not having any drinks!

There are a few points in the park that overlook the Bay and there is a small beach down by the boat launch that was a nice spot to warm up in the sun as the campgrounds were heavily shaded by all the trees.

Wood and ice were available for purchase at the entrance of the campground.

All-in-all it was a great spot to camp and I'd definitely recommend it!

Great Park with campsites, small marina and boat launch but we were looking for a beach to wade and skip rocks. This beach is very little sand - a lot of crushed shell so hard on the feet. The beach is small, but there was plenty of space when we were there on a Sunday.

Nice to go for a quick get away from Green Bay. Has a beach, boat launch, hiking/biking trails, pavilion, playground and camping. Wear water shoes at the beach as it is rocky but very nice.

We live nearby. Great boat launch although hill is steep so be prepared. Lovely campground and a very nice playground for the youngsters. Good, paved walking trail.

The campground is located close to the lake with biking and walking trails. You can walk to the lake shore and the public boat ramp was first class. The campground had tree coverage and overall level. The larger bathrooms and shower facilities were quite nice while the smaller satellite bathrooms could use a good cleaning and did not have sinks for cleaning up. Some of the camp sights are quite close together (ours had plenty of space). The water hook-up for our site was very far away and we could not reach it with 50' of hose. The road noise from Hwy. was very loud. Great family campground and ideal for fisherman.

Just had my daughters wedding at Bay Shore Park. What a fantastic location! She rented the park and brought in her own chairs, and set them up so the attendees could watch them with one of the most fantastic views in the area! There was enough shade to keep the area from getting too hot, but not so much as to cast shadows over the Bride and Groom. She had 50 chairs set up and about 60 people there, plus wedding party and there could have been another 100 without issue. Only draw back was electrical power. We had to run about 200+ feet of extension cord to power the PA system. Other than that, I dont know of a more perfect spot to start a life together.
