The lighthouse is beautiful and open for tours if you're up to climbing many steps. For those of you like me, there are cool rocks at ground level to traverse and explore. It's a unique shoreline, photogenic with waves lapping against huge slabs of rock and plants growing up through crevices. It's also a peaceful, wonderful place to bring a... More

Great views. Got there too late to climb to the top of the lighthouse and to visit the museum. A nice picnic area. We liked that it was free to visit (there was a fee to climb the lighthouse).

Highly recommended on a hot sunny clear day. You have to get a ticket to climb the lighthouse, but it is worth it for the great views from the top. Nice small (air conditioned) museum and some nice lakeshore to explore. We like to ride our bikes there and then hang out for a little while. Worth a visit.

If you are big into lighthouses this one seemed like it was nice. There was a museum adjacent to the actual lighthouse which was free and had some neat photos; they are in the process of enlarging this portion of the site. The lighthouse cost a few bucks to go up and was fairly crowded. The pit toilets at the... More

The view was beautiful. You can see cedar point from the light house. This is a must see sight. You can look in the light house window and see in side.

Nice lighthouse. Worth a visit. This was a stop before heading to Sandusky. We arrived just as they were closing so check website before you go.

The area around the lighthouse is a very nice view of Lake Erie. With the view finders on the property, you can see Ceder Point, and other areas around the lake. There was plenty of people fishing in the area, and picnic table were available. Also got to see a wedding proposal under the lighthouse :) The area made for... More

What a beautiful lighthouse. It was great to be able to go all the way to the top and look across the lake. The kids loved it as well. Great fishing spot as well.

This was worth the trip to Marblehead. Lighthouse is open for tours Monday through Friday 8am-4pm. To the right of the lighthouse you can walk out on the rocks and see over to Cedar Point. Awesome place!

This was a fun stop on our trip... absolutely beautiful! There were quite a few people at the park, but it still felt secluded under the trees along the shore. We will definitely visit again when back in the area.
