Peninsula State Park and Weborg Point
Weborg Point and Peninsula Park Beech Forest State Natural Area are two exceptional sites within the 3,776-acre boundary of Peninsula State Park. Weborg Point is a mixture of sedge meadow, conifer forest and open water facing Strawberry Channel. It provides habitat for all types of water birds including herons and egrets, gulls, shorebirds, and Marsh Wrens. The Beech Forest SNA straddles the Niagara escarpment. Dry forest dominates the edge of the escarpment, while mesic forest of American beech, sugar maple and hemlock are found on the uplands overlooking Green Bay. Peninsula State Park also contains 9 miles of bike trails, 20 miles of hiking trails, 472 campsites, an observation tower, summer theater, an 18-hole golf course, and historic Eagle Buff Lighthouse.
