"Fish Boils, Ferries, and Fun

Overview

Quote:
We based our trip from the largest of the towns called Sturgeon Bay. There is 250 miles of shoreline, so just start heading north on highway 57. We enjoyed Peninsula State Park near Fish Creek. It has 3,776 acres an 18 hole golf course, hiking, bike trails, camping, swimming, boat rentals, observation tower, summer theater, fishing, and 130-year-old Eagle Bluff lighthouse.

Pelletier's Restaurant & Fish Boil

Restaurant | "Pelletier's"

Quote:
Even though they offer breakfast and lunch, the evenings are reserved for fish boils. The fish boil consists of fresh locally caught whitefish cut into steaks, new potatoes, and sweet onions. The ingredients are boiled to perfection out-of-doors in a large stainless steel kettle over a wood fire. Salt is the only seasoning used. After the cooking process the meal is served with hot melted butter, cole slaw, bread, and beverage. There is also pie for dessert. Chicken or a beef burger is available for those who prefer not to eat fish. One "BOIL" serves 50+ people. The fish has all the bones so you have to pick those out as you eat.
