Cabins Near Potawatomi State Park – Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort
First, I’m blown away by this Midwestern destination, and now I know all about Door Country and its surrounding areas. This Texan was in heaven the whole time I was there, as the weather never rose past 78 degrees.
Not only did I enjoy hiking in the state park, but I also was able to finish one segment of the Ice Age Trail. My friend told me all about it, and we were eager to find it and hike it. I have to say, we were worn out afterward, and my feet hurt, but it was worth it. And, we had a lovely cabin to rest our weary feet.

Hike And Play At Potawatomi State Park
Potawatomi State Park is a 1,225-acre state park on the shore of Sturgeon Bay. So while you’re hiking in some parts, you’ll get a glimpse of the water. We saw many people riding bikes and walking on the paved street, but of course, since we were hiking the Ice Age Trail, we hiked on the trails. Any way you wander through the park, you’ll have a great experience. Leashed pets are welcome too.
However, as I said above, if you’re staying at Tranquil Timbers, you can walk into the park. Our cabin was steps away from the sign above.
The Ice Age Trail At Potawatomi State Park
The Ice Age Trail runs 1000 miles or so through the state of Wisconsin and is broken up into segments. At Potawatomi State Park, it’s the Eastern Terminus or the final point. But you can most definitely start there too. Actually, you can start anywhere on the trail. Some hikers hike the whole trail all at once, camping here and there until they reach the end. They go prepared, keep good records and take their time. I’m just glad I hiked one segment of the Ice Age Trail. Not sure if I’ll ever get back up that way to hike more. But you never know.
