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. Family-friendly places like Nicolet Bay Beach and The Farm will thrill your kids. Step out of Fish Creek with an excursion to Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay--about 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the majestic nature at Peninsula State Park, revel in the low prices at Door Artisan Cheese, visit a coastal fixture at Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, and walk around Sunset Beach Park.
