I visited this lighthouse during my tour of the Sturgeon Bay area. Even though a storm was brewing, we had an excellent time touring the lighthouse and surrounding area. The guides were great and told lots of stories about the family and the hard work of maintaining the lighthouse over the years. I was happy to see so many original... More

This lighthouse tour is a must see in Door County. It has a interesting history and is located in a scenic area within Penisula State Park. The view is amazing. They were replacing roofing on the day that we were there. It's nice to see that it is being well maintained. Be prepared to pay $7 admission in cash. It... More

Really? There is someone down-thread who was upset that they charge $7 per person for a guided tour? C'mon! How do you think they support the continuing maintenance and renovation of this little jewel, which by the way is still a WORKING lighthouse! (Although they don't use the fresnel lens that you can see above the top of the spiral... More

An interesting, historic light and residence. Great views from the tower, but also from the ground as it's located on a bluff. Don't be scared off if the tower isn't accessible for you.

This was the first lighthouse my husband and I visited on our day filled with lighthouses. It was a beautiful place to start, even though it was raining. We paid for the tour and really enjoyed learning all about the family that lived there and seeing the spacious quarters. We loved our guide and the enthusiasm she had for the... More

This lighthouse is very interesting. It is inspiring to learn how people lived back in the day and how hard they worked.

This is a picturesque lighthouse, with nice views of the lake. Lovely in fall. We also stopped here once on a ghost tour of Door County. So keep a look out for friendly spirits wandering the grounds!

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse is the best restored and most easily accessible lighthouse in Door County. The residence is furnished as it looked in the 19th and early 20th century and the tour provides history of the family life of the residents along with the work involved in maintaining the light. The view of Green Bay from the bluff is wonderful.... More

When you drive up to this lighthouse you think...what a cute and tiny lighthouse. Wrong. This lighthouse is locate on top of a 30 foot bluff, and at the top of the tower is 70 some feet high in the air. The lighthouse living quarters are the largest I've seen. Very spacious (even though...I think with 7 kids...very tight). We... More
