Join us at Wisconsin’s only designated dark sky park for a night of star gazing. There will be telescopes and other equipment set up with some of Door County’s best amateur astronomers on hand to point out some highlights of the night sky. All are welcome to bring their own telescopes, binoculars, or other optics .

Seating is extremely limited; bring chairs or blankets. Flashlights or headlamps with red lens cover are recommended to protect night vision. It is always a good idea to come during day time hours to familiarize yourself with the area first. 

Park at Lot 3 and follow the marked path to the viewing area.

Alternate date for rain/poor conditions: August 10th
