The park's wilderness philosophy offers 2,370-acres of forests and 11 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, 30 miles of hiking trails and backpack camping, as quiet alternatives to bustling Door County. For a unique and interactive outdoor experience, check out Fern Trail in Door County's Newport State Park. The trail is completely accessible, with the goal of guiding visitors through the forest with interpretative, engaging panels. The panels include audio interpretation, illustrations, guided imagery and tactile elements. For those with a visual loss, or others just looking for an even more interactive experience, they can check out a "Discovery Pen" at the park visitor center. Touch the pen to the panel and instantly hear audio of birds, narration of the panels, as well as an explanation of the imagery and tactile elements on each panel. Pets are welcome in Wisconsin State Parks but must be on a leash and under control at all times. Certain areas may be off limits to pets.
