Spectacular View of Ephraim
The picturesque village of Ephraim is nestled in the heart of the Door County peninsula. Settled in 1853 by Norwegian Moravias on the tranquil shores of Eagle Harbor, Ephraim is one of Door County’s finest treasures. Ephraim’s rich heritage has been carefully preserved in more than 30 historical sites throughout the village. You can step into the past by taking a Historical Walking Tour or visiting one of the village museums.
Ephraim has the most accessible shoreline of all Door County communities. There is something for everyone along the waterfront. Adventurous types can explore Eagle Harbor from a jet ski, a kayak, or by para-sail high above the Bay. Rent a family-sized pontoon boat or enjoy the panoramic view of Ephraim and nearby Peninsula State Park on a sailboat tour. Spend a day relaxing at the public sand beach. Finish the day with a picture perfect sunset!
