Cave Point County Park is an unsettled and crumbling facade on the Lake Michigan shoreline near Jacksonport. Unseen in underground caves below your feet a Greek tragedy plays out. Stand above one of these caves and the rumble of stone carving waves will tell you the story of an a stubborn rock being battered to silt by roaring waves.
A shelf of dense dolomite extends about 1/4 of a mile offshore just beneath the lake surface. This feature causes wind whipped waves to break off shore and accelerate towards the Cave Point bluffs. Great Lake spay leaps some 30 feet into the air to dance with the sunlight in one frozen and weightless moment before splattering down on the rocks below. The sea recedes in swirls and churns as it is drawn back into the next fist for striking at the Door. Above it all a stoic cedar stand rises at a pace so slow as to measured in inches a year.
