  • Beautiful views. The drive out is very scenic. Well worth the visit.
  • I got engaged here, so I may be a little partial to this location, but it's stunning. Gorgeous area where you can enjoy the water and the lighthouse. Well worth the drive.
  • Pleasant beach area and historical site. Great view of both bays, and the lake itself. Charge for walking up to the top of the lighthouse is worth it for the view and experience.
  • You have to pay $4 to walk up 37 stairs to the top of the lighthouse... a little to much for that! They would probably make more money doing a dollar a person honestly. Very clean beach and beautiful scenery.
  • Fun spot! Going up in the lighthouse is a bit pricey, but it's fun to do once. It's a gorgeous place. Stop at the Old Mission General Store while you're out there and get a cream cheese-filled pretzel!
