In the seventh in a series on the Door County Parks system, we feature the Robert M. Carmody County Park in the town of Gardner. Located along the bay of Little Sturgeon, this park offers one of Door County’s largest boat launches. The six-lane launch and fishing pier is a popular destination for anglers from in and outside the area, according to Door County Parks Director Eric Aleson. He says Carmody Park offers a peaceful, scenic place to visit even in the late fall.
Robert M. Carmody County Park was designed around three mature oak trees and includes a picnic area with plenty of parking. In 2001, the Wisconsin DNR and Door County purchased 4.5 acres of shoreline jointly for constructing the boat launch. It was the first jointly owned county parks in the county.
