Kewaunee Harbor and Marsh Walk

This compelling walkway combines a beautiful Lake Michigan harbor, the Kewaunee River, wetlands and river marshes. This spot is one of the county’s best birding sites, but is often overlooked. The harbor is especially avian-rich during the fall, winter and spring when the migration is in play, and where there is open water in the winter. The walkway covers 2,430 feet, of which 980 feet are a wooden boardwalk that takes you through the heart of the Kewaunee River Marsh. There is a wooden deck with benches where you can relax and enjoy this beautiful site.

Directions: Located just north of Kewaunee on Hwy 42 – as you cross the bridge over the Kewaunee River, look for Kewaunee Landing and the Kewaunee Marsh Walk sign west of Hwy 42.
