  • Instead of spending much time here, go ut to the left and walk along the dunes. There are very few people and they feel pristine. 
  • A lovely lighthouse museum, obviously cared for lovingly by a team of volunteers. It's in a beautiful location, and the views from the tower while climbing are lovely. This is a charming place to stop if you are interested in history. My boyfriend and I adored this place. However, if you are not able bodied this might not be the place to visit. You have to climb several steps to get into the lighthouse, then the official museum displays are on the second floor, and then you still would need to climb the lighthouse tower to get to the top. There is a paved, accessible walkway next to the water that give you a good view of the lighthouse but just know that if you can't climb stairs you will miss out on a major part of the experience.
  • Excellent presentation, nice artifacts, very nice curator
  • Beautiful building, quiet location...I've lived in the area for most of my life and just discovered this lighthouse a few months ago!
  • Nice views of the lake from the lighthouse and the pier! Great clean beach too! Excellent place for an unobstructed walk around the lighthouse to the pier. Go right before dusk to get some great pictures also!
  • Great step back in time. The museum portion of the lighthouse is very well done. Great information about the maritime history of White Lake. Tower was fun to climb as well. It was not to high for those who are afraid of heights. Nice gift shop.
