Welcome to Kewaunee
Escape the Everything
Rich in History
Kewaunee is located on Lake Michigan and nestled 30 miles south of Door County and 30 miles east of Green Bay. With Kewaunee’s population just under 3000 people, Kewaunee is a quiet and picturesque community that offers different seasonal activities for the young and old alike.
Experience some of the best deep water fishing on Lake Michigan, take a stroll through the Marquette Historic District, or simply relax on the quiet beach and picturesque harbor area. The more active may seek to bike, hike or go horseback riding on The Ahnapee State Trail – a rails-to-trails project that connects all the major Kewaunee County communities with Door County. The Kewaunee River is a great opportunity for kayaking and canoeing as well.
Kewaunee is independent, and businesses here are proud to be primarily locally-owned and operated. If you want a genuine local experience, you will find it here in lodging, entertainment and family-run restaurants. Please come and be our guest! You may never want to leave.
The way the Kewaunee area community supports local businesses and organizations means that folks here care about each other. When you have that, you have a chance to build something really special. Communities that have that kind of unity are positive and uplifting places to live and work.Jim Smidel
Kewaunee is the kind of place that just feels like home. The family atmosphere and community pride are reflected in just about everything you see and experience here. Being a member of The Chamber means that I am promoting and preserving that culture.John Pagel
