Fish Creek is an unincorporated community located in Door County, Wisconsin, United States, within the town of Gibraltar and is located on Highway 42 along Green Bay.HistoryThe first settler of Fish Creek was Increase Claflin and his family circa 1844, but the village founder is considered to be entrepreneur Asa Thorp. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Schoolhouse Beach and Nicolet Bay Beach. Cana Island Lighthouse and Eagle Bluff Lighthouse will appeal to history buffs.
