Geocache Description:

Newport State Park, northeast of Ellison Bay, is Wisconsin's only formally-designated wilderness park. With 2,373 acres and 11 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, the park offers quiet alternatives to bustling Door County. Explore 30 miles of hiking trails with hike-in campsites. There are evergreen and hardwood forests, wetlands and upland meadows.



The Lake Michigan shoreline dominates the till plains biome. This biome was shaped by the last glaciation with glacial till left behind forming the landscape of eskers, drumlins and moraines most easily seen within the Kettle Moraine forest units.  The lakeshore displays sand dunes that will often adjoin tamarack swamplands.  Close to Lake Michigan’s shores, birds of water such as shorebirds and ducks will be found.  Animal life may include White Tailed Deer and small mammals such as otters and fox.
