  • Blahnik Park: Talk about strategically located, this newest Kewaunee County park offers fishing along the Ahnapee River on the west and direct access to hiking on the Ahnapee Trail on the east, all within about a hundred yards of each other.  Find it by taking Highway 42 out of Algoma toward Forestville, turning west onto Washington Road (about two miles outside Algoma) and looking for signs at about half a mile.  Portable toilet and picnic table in the summer.
  • Bruemmer Park & Zoo: Visitors will find a unique combination of unspoiled wilderness and first-rate picnic and recreation areas at Bruemmer Park.  A large playground and small zoo provide hours of family enjoyment.  Three shelters are available for special event rentals and there’s more than 70 acres of woods to explore.  Bruemmer Park and Zoo is located just off of CR-F across from the county highway department.
  • Bruemmerville Park: This rustic two-acre park combines great fishing on the Silver Creek dam with picnic tables, shelter, outhouses, playground and grills, for a relaxing family getaway. Just west of Algoma where Fremont St. meets Willow Road
  • Dana Farm: This historic site is the former home of Ransom Moore, the founder of 4H in Wisconsin.  Plenty of recreational area is available.

  • East Alaska Lake Park: If you are into fun, fishing, and just forgetting about day-to-day worries back home. Just off hwy 42, the town of Alaska is south of Algoma, where 42 meets County D. Drive North on County D and follow the signs.
  • Heidmann’s Lake Park: This small (one-acre) park launches onto big fun for boaters and anglers on Heidmann’s Lake, a small inland lake. Picnic tables, outhouses, boat landing.
  • Highway 57 Wayside Park: Taking the Green Bay route north to Door County?  Stop along the way for a relaxing picnic.

  • Krohn’s Lake Park: A hidden gem, Krohn’s Lake (County KK off K) packs a lot of fun – fishing, swimming, boating, and more – into a small park on this beautiful lake.  Toilets, swimming, boat landing.
  • Red River Park: Just off Highway 57 between Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay, Red River Park has a boat ramp onto the Bay of Green Bay, playground facilities, a small sand beach, and picnic area with a shelter, picnic tables and grills.  Bring the whole team, because there’s even a well-maintained baseball diamond.
  • Shea’s Lake Park: Hard to find, but worth the search.  Nestled in the southwest corner of Kewaunee County, Shea’s Lake Park is ideal for fishing and boating.  Need a boat?  You can rent one nearby.  To get there, take Hwy. 42 to the southern county line. Turn west on County BB. Continue 8 miles to County Q.  Turn north and travel 2 miles to County KB. Turn west and go 1/2 mile to the park.
  • West Alaska Lake Park: A stone’s throw from Highway 42 on County D, find family fun fishing, boating, swimming and picnicking.
