  • It is a good place to take pictures of the lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is actually not open very often. I was surprised to see people surfing on Lake Michigan on a 12F day.  more »
  • Wonderful piece of history and great place to watch moon rise. Be sure to read plaques with history.  more »
  • Often we have seen this place open for public tours 2-3 times per year and there are plenty of us who enjoy visiting lighthouses! The grounds are kept very well and there is easy access.  more »

  • Well maintained lighthouse that helped ships navigate around a dangerous Silurian reef. A nice tourist spot if you are into lighthouses. There is also a small beach with some of the best smooth rock picking I have ever seen, people had buckets full of rocks they picked. Careful of the under tow and if you venture on the rocks you will probably fall in.
  • Spied the light while having lunch at the nearby marina. It was a great day for pictures. Worth stopping by if you’re in the area. They give tours seasonally, that we unfortunately missed.
  • The staff at Lighthouse is always easy to get along with, a pleasure to work with, and we always end up with such beautiful pictures!
  • Love going here small town treasure. And the view after the Light house is Lake Michigan. My pictures speak for this beautiful place.
  • Beautiful lighthouse and historical restored buildings. Unfortunately, the lighthouse only opens once a month for tours and there isn't much to do here unless you pack some lunch, a bathing suit or a camera. Great place to visit if in the area, but don't drive more than an hour to see it unless you really dig lighthouses.
