Situated along the Lake Michigan shoreline, this quaint community offers a variety of fun and exciting activities. Experience our sandy beaches and rocky shoreline cliffs. Hike on peaceful trails and bike on quiet back roads, or enjoy our celebrations and festivals that add a bit of pizzazz to the otherwise laid back and relaxing atmosphere that is Jacksonport.
Originally a bustling logging and fishing village, Jacksonport is now the year round home to approximately 750 residents as well as many more that call Jacksonport their tranquil escape for the entire summer, a week or perhaps just a few days.
Be sure to check out Whitefish Dunes State Park, located just south of Jacksonport, where you can hike amongst the tallest sand dunes in the state of Wisconsin. And don’t miss Cave Point County Park, located next to Whitefish Dunes, to see powerful Lake Michigan waves crashing against the rocky cliffs below.
Whatever your activity, local businesses are ready and willing to serve you. And with Jacksonport’s convenient Door County location, you’re close to all of what the Door County Peninsula has to offer.
We hope to see you soon on the “quiet side!”
