Welcome to the Friends of Whitefish Dunes Internet home. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to enhancing and supporting the park’s mission and goals.  

We work to enhance and preserve the park’s natural and cultural resources while offering activities and projects to improve your visit.  The Friends sponsor educational and recreational activities and provide financial support for special park needs.   

Whitefish Dunes State Park, established in 1967, is an 865-acre day use park on Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula. The park preserves the largest and most significant Great Lakes dunescape in Wisconsin.
