A well kept area surrounding the lighthouse with a few buildings on the grounds. I've been to a few lighthouses, this is a pretty typical small lighthouse, nothing stood out as anything unique.

this is a great attraction with plenty of history attached. It is a well conducted tour and yes, you can climb to the top if you so desire. It may not look all that high from ground level but it has amazing views 360! Loved the homemade cookies and hot chocolate to take the chill out this time of year

This is an absolutely wonderful attraction that provides a thought provoking tour for a very reasonable price. Our tour guide was very knowledgable, personable, worm and welcoming. The views from the top of the lighthouse were spectacular!

Really enjoyed visiting the lighthouse and the surrounding beach area. The kids found rocks and shells and loved playing along the beach. The area is just gorgeous.

This was my reason for driving 6 hours from Ohio.The tour was interesting and the guide was knowledgeable and fun to talk to.The gift shop was a little expensive,but that's expected for most lighthouse tours.

It's a very beautiful property and has a lot of history. You are able to walk up to the top of the lighthouse, but we did not want to spend money to walk up to it.

Very nice Lighthouse right on Lake Huron. This is very well kept and has a cute gift store. We only walked around the outside of the lighthouse, but they offer tours.

All lighthouses are beautiful & have great views. What sets this one apart is its location so close to Canada (the Bridge to Canada is at near eye level from the top!) & the staff that lead the tours. Our guide was friendly & incredibly knowledgeable about the light itself & the history that goes with it. :) The tour... More

We have taken many of our guests here so they can tour this special place, all of them have gone up in the lighthouse and loved it. Everyone had the right shoes and there are some shoes for sale in the gift shop.

Fort Gratiot Lighthouse has daily tours where you can walk to the top of the lighthouse. Be sure and bring tennis shoes for the walk up to the top.
