The day that we went was about 70 degrees and a slight breeze off the lake, such a beautiful sight! The lighthouse was closed, so we just sat on one of the benches and just enjoyed the view!

The Lighthouse Park is very nice! There are lots of rocks to climb on. You can also watch all the boats coming and going. The park is very clean. If you like lighthouses this is a pretty one!

There is a park and there are restrooms. The park is clean and play of play area for the kids. We had a dog here and didn't see any sighs that said you couldn't have dogs. Have fun parking should be more for the size of the park

Actually, my wife and I got married here five years ago. We go back every year once or twice when in the area. Beautiful grounds and scenery. Definitely somewhere to stop by and check out!

My 82 year old mother had never seen a lighthouse before so for Mother's day we took her. It didn't open until memorial day so we could only see the outside. She couldn't have walked the spiral staircase anyway but others were disappointed. We also wish the restroom facility had been more than port-o-pottys. Go before you reach this site,... More

A nice place to take a walk & relax while sitting next to Lake Erie. The lighthouse was fun to see. Definitely recommend stopping by.

This was well worth the effort to stop. Beautifully maintained. They lighthouse and museum don't open to the public until May, so we will be stopping again soon.

We've been going to the lighthouse since we were kids, but this past winter we went up and got to view the lighthouse from the lake. Yes, from out on the frozen lake. If you are looking for something to do on a sunny day in the middle of winter and you are within driving distance, head up to Marblehead... More
