Potawatomi State Park on the shore of Sturgeon Bay in southern Door County, has 1,200 acres of gently rolling upland terrain bordered by steep slopes and rugged limestone cliffs. Over two miles of shoreline provide many scenic views and recreational opportunities. A 75-foot observation tower rises above the forest canopy giving a panoramic view. On a clear day, the view from the park's observation tower reaches 16 miles across Green Bay.

The park is named in honor of the tribe that inhabited Green Bay’s shores and islands when Europeans first settled the area. The tribe called themselves “Bo-De-Wad-Me” which means “keeper of the fire.” Eventually the spelling and pronunciation were changed to “Potawatomi.”

There's plenty to do at the park. You can camp, fish, picnic, bike, ski, boat, hike the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, and more.

Two loops of the Daisy Field Campground offer a total of 123 campsites, 40 of them with electricity. Four group sites, each able to accommodate 30 people will open in 2009. Two of the group sites can accommodate trailers and motor homes and the other two sites are available for tent campers. Shower facilities and a sanitary dump station are open in season.

In addition to Potawatomi's Accessible Cabin, the park has two paved, accessible campsites in the south loop of the campground. These sites have paved pathways leading to the toilet/shower facility and are equipped with pedestals for electric hookups.
