The beautiful Sturgeon Bay on Lake Michigan is characterized by rolling hills bordered by steep slopes and rugged limestone cliffs. Potawatomi Campground is nestled under the forest canopy not far from the lake’s shore. If you’re not afraid of heights, the first thing you should do is climb high above the trees to the top of a 75-foot observation tower for a beautiful view of Sawyer Harbor. And, of course you have to get in the water, so rent a canoe or kayak or launch your own boat for endless exploration opportunities. This great lake is better than great—it’s phenomenal.
