  • Crisp Point Lighthouse is by far one of my most favorite places on earth. By. Far. It is well worth the drive. I always pack a picnic and stay as long as possible. The lighthouse keepers are super fri...  more »
  • We planned to visit this place after visiting the Tahquamenon Falls state park. We initially missed the turn to get to the lighthouse as the road was a mud road and went a long way ahead before realiz...  more »
  • Everything I read before going here was true. The roads are logging roads with ruts, and large puddles in the middle of woods--we were thankful for 4-wheel drive. But the lighthouse and the view from ...  more »

  • This has always been my favorite lighthouse. Please do your research. 9 times out of 10 we have needed our pickup to get there. It can take an hour or more to get there and all on 2 tracks and please follow the signs, but when you get there it is indescribable. Its a one of a kind and the whole experience is the best. The weather can be vicious sometimes. The keepers we have met have all been wonderful too!!
  • Such a beautiful place to go it's hard to get to but we'll worth the ride. They have the friendliest staff I have ever met and alot of history please take the time and come here.
  • Indescribable! One of a kind experience. A Michigan Gem. The people in charge of maitainence and restoration do a wonderful job. Be appreciative of their work. Please, if you go, pack in your own food and pack out all of your garbage. Treat this place with the respect that it deserves.
  • Well worth the drive, absolutely fantastic views from the top of the lighthouse. The grounds are impressively maintained, with actual working toilets available in season. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but as far off the beaten path as this place is, it was a nice surprise. Speaking of the path, all but the lowest sports cars should not have any issues navigating the roads in nice weather. Wet or snowy weather will up the difficulty somewhat, but four wheel drive or an off road machine is not required. There is signage to guide you in the proper direction, but they're small and easy to miss. It's best to have the directions from the Crisp Point website which list landmarks along the way, along with a running mileage count. Come prepared, as cell phones likely won't work for most of the journey.
  • Attempted getting to the light house yesterday in a Chevy Cruze but had to abort about two miles from the lighthouse due to a questionable pool of water crossing the road that I didn’t feel like testing my luck out on. Given how remote it is and no cell service to speak of (awesome :D), getting stuck is not a viable option. Nevertheless awesome drive out there through what seemed liked Siberia. I bet if it was dry a regular passenger car would not have trouble getting there.
