  • Had a great time there! The weather was co operative and the view is beautiful. Park is clean and well taken care of! 
  • A place of history and beauty. As some one born in Ohio and has traveled a bit its nice to see things like this light house standing tall still a guiding light for those traveling the Lake. 
  • My husband and I have lived in west end of Ottawa County all our lives but never ever visited the Marblehead Lighthouse until we retired. Such a gorgeous lighthouse and such a magnificent location. We...  more »

  • Based on the reviews, I was expecting something more spectacular than what awaited us after a 1.5hr motorcycle trip to the lighthouse. Don't get me wrong, its' really neat. Very pretty view . But the area is really small, crowded, and the lighthouse tours end really early. Not much to do here. You go see it, take a couple pictures, sit on the giant rocks on the shore, and then go home. I've been to a dozen or so lighthouses along the Atlantic Coast, Pacific Coast, and Gulf of Mexico. Maybe that's why this one was underwhelming. We stayed for around a half hour, instead of the couple hours we anticipated spending there. The roads were really busy going to and from the lighthouse as well, so anticipate lots of traffic in the terminal area. *** Strengths: Historic, well maintained, pretty scenery, lakefront *** Weaknesses: Crowded, small area, lighthouse tours ended quickly, lighthouse seems small *** Recommendations: Go during non peak hours, don't expect to be wowed.
  • Beautiful calming views. Good for place to gave a picnic with many picnic tables available. Nice place to listen to the waves crash ashore and watch the sailboats and ships pass along. If it's not muggy /foggy you can see cedar point and downtown Sandusky. On the other side is Put-In-Bay. They also provide tours of the lighthouse given the season.
  • Peaceful, beautiful park. Well kept. And the views are lovely
  • Very nice park. Beautiful views both from the shore and from the lighthouse. A small museum. Portable washrooms. Free parking.
  • Very knowledgeable staff! Park and buildings are always clean. New life saving station open and is a GREAT addition to the property.
