Find your wild side

Live life a little wild!

Baileys Harbor is truly a year-round destination when it comes to breaking up the day to day grind. Each season brings with it a change in the weather that opens the door to new activities and must do events.  

Winter never has a dull moment!

As the snow starts stacking up, our dormant orchards and frozen wetlands become off road highways for snowmobiles and fat biking. Silent sports dominate the miles of trails with hiking, snowshoeing and skiing. Look for the * symbol to find the local restaurants, shops, points of interest and lodging options that stay open all year long. If you want to join us for some local fun, Winter Rally on the Roo and the Door County Pond Hockey Tournament are sure to rid you of that cabin fever.

Spring takes back the ice covered waters

which means Lake Michigan comes to life with stellar activities like brown trout fishing and spotting shipwrecks through our crystal clear waters. Miles of nature trails come alive to forage, bird watch, or reconnect with mother earth.  Our Annual Brown Trout Tournament in April, and the Blessing of the Fleet Festival in May, mark the beginnings of the fishing season and are can’t miss events for those that love to get out on the water.  

Summer brings beach days, boating, exploring, and campfires.

The culinary scene is in full swing during the summer months providing endless options for eating local. A must stop is our weekly Farmers Markets every Sunday with live concerts in the park. Come hungry, grab lunch from local vendors, listen to great music and shop for all your home goods and fresh produce.

Fall slows things down after a hectic summer of nonstop activity.

Cooler weather, crisp air and changing leaves blanket the harbor and allow for self-reflection.  The miles of backroads provide great ways to slow down, cruise the countryside and snap some pics of nature at its finest. Join us for Autumnfest where you’ll find great music, spectacular local cuisine and a Midwest welcome you won’t find anywhere else.  

No matter what time of year, you can find an adventure on the wild side in Baileys Harbor.
