Gills Rock

At the "Top of the Thumb" in Door County

At the very tip of the Door County peninsula lies Gills Rock, where a strong tradition of commercial fishing continues today. This area is also very popular with scuba divers who explore the many shipwrecks in and around Death’s Door. The Door County maritime museum houses many artifacts from these wrecks and chronicles the fishing industry. Ferries to Washington Island depart regularly from Gills Rock and nearby Northport Pier.
