Neat light house, well preserved with interesting history. Our son enjoyed learning about the people who had lived there throughout the years and what life must have been like for them in such an isolated region

this was one of the more interesting Light Houses historically. the guide was extremely knowledgeable and the location was a bit unique. It was built on a cliff and therefore the lighthouse wasn't that tall. The story about the inhabitants was amazing. there were 9 people in the family....I won't ruin the rest of the story for you. This lighthouse... More

The setting of this lighthouse is beautiful and worth the trip but I was disappointed that there was an additional fee to tour the lighthouse.

We toured the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse as part of a trolley tour. The docents were very knowledgeable in telling us the importance of the lighthouse and the stories about the keeper's family. It was a great way to learn more local history.

Five older family members hoped to tour Eagle Bluff Lighthouse. This was our main purpose in visiting Peninsula State Park and paying the entrance fee. But, when we tried to visit the lighthouse, we were turned away and told that it would close to 1.5 hours before they would allow us to visit as they were waiting for a large... More

We have been to many lighthouses, and found this one to be very nicely restored and filled with beautiful antiques. The tour is well worth it and gives you a good idea of what being a lightkeeper was like. Highly recommend!

We had rented bikes at the park entrance and came upon the lighthouse on our ride through the park trails. Stopped to go in and took the tour. Well worth it for the bay view and lighthouse keeper history. Docent was very knowledgable and friendly. Stairway up to the top is steep.

This might be another great spot to visit during less crowded times. The grounds were so crowded with people just wanting photos with the water as a backdrop and few that were actually interested in the lighthouse/tour. However, it made for a nice small tour group which is nice when going through the house and up the tower.

This is a beautiful scenic historical stop that is a must see when you are at Peninsula State Park. I definitely recommend taking the tour as the tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable and allowed and answered questions. Gives you great insight into the history of this place and what life was like for light keepers and their families... More

We stopped on our drive through the park to see the lighthouse and took the tour through the lighthouse. If was well worth it. Our guide was delightful and had hundreds of historical facts to tell us. The rooms were so much fun to see decorated with furniture that had even been in the family that had lived in the... More
