Sister Bay was given its name via the Sister Islands that stand guard at the harbor opening of Sister Bay. What was once a village of fish camps, loggers and farmers, is now a vibrant and tight-knit waterfront community with diverse options for dining, shopping, and outdoor recreation. Here are some of our neighbors and landmarks we love in Sister Bay and the greater Door Peninsula.
Peninsula State Park
Peninsula State Park is a 3,776-acre Wisconsin state park with eight miles of Green Bay shoreline in Door County. Peninsula is the third largest state park in Wisconsin, and is visited by an estimated 1 million visitors annually.
