Cozy cottages and homes, sand beaches, quaint shops, and scenic shore line parks combine to make Jacksonport part of the Door County experience. Three great parts you will want to enjoy include: Lake Side Park; located in the heart of the village, offers a great sand beach, picnic facilities and a children's play area. Cave Point; just a few miles south of Jacksonport. Stand on the rocky bluff and watch Lake Michigan carve sea caves beneath your feet. Whitefish Dunes; located south of Jacksonport with an adjacent access to Cave Point offers more than a mile of sandy beach and 14 miles of hiking, biking, and skiing trails.

The villages festival season begins here on January 1 at noon when a large crowd gathers to watch hundreds of human polar bears take an icy dash into Lake Michigan. "Polar Bear Plunge."
