In the fourth of the series on Door County Parks, we travel to the town of Egg Harbor. Frank E. Murphy County Park is about 14 acres of land along Bay Shore Drive where Horseshoe Bay Road or County Road G intersects. Door County Parks Director Erik Aleson says Murphy Park is one of the few county parks with sandy swimming beaches.
The other two county parks with swimming beaches are Ridges County Park in Baileys Harbor, Percy Johnson Park on Washington Island. Murphy Park also features docking and a boat launch, playground, volleyball courts, and picnic area with a pavilion. The annual Door County Triathlon is based at the park in late July every year, according to Aleson. You can find a map and description of all 19 Door County Parks with this story online.
