  • Not a car ride for the weak. Shop I have seen cars and caravans make it however they may have a few tense moments ☺️. The road is forever long, endless curves and very bumps with car sized puddles. Th...  more »
  • Wow! Half the adventure was getting there. Don't take the "short cut" offered on Maps. We spent over 2 hours finding our way on poorly marked I maintained dirt roads and snowmobile paths. Once we got ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Tou definitely need an all-wheel or 4×4 to get here. Even an 4-Wheeler would work. The signs are small and infrequent so keep your eyes peeled! It is an adventure to get there but completely worth the trip. Absolutely beautiful. 😊 You should stop at the mouth of the Two-Hearted River while out here.
  • A fun windy drive leads you to this remote shoreline, where one of Michigan's most vulnerable lighthouses still stands. What remains has been beautifully restored. You can climb the tower and walk the sandy shoreline, taking in the dunes and forest. There's not much else to do out here since it's so far from civilization! Just remember to stock your car with ketchup packets in case you get trapped on the road in winter.
  • Such a remote and beautiful place, that draws me back again and again!
  • Had a great time. Drove forever down the craziest-pothole-road-from-hell and it was totally worth it! Stayed for three days on the lake and met great people. Worth the drive if you love rock hounding and beautiful solitary places.
