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

The grounds are beautiful, and the property sits high on a bluff overlooking Green Bay. Really a beautiful sitting. Parking is very close for those averse to walking. The lighthouse is open from June to mid October. There are tours available that... More

We went to see the lighthouse and found out there was a docent tour for $5. We found it to be well worth the money to hear the history and see the lighthouse that had been restored by the community (it's in the Park but a private group raised the funds and coordinated the restoration). It's fascinating to learn about... More

We stopped here hoping to take a peek inside not realizing you had to be part of a tour. We had visited state, national and county parks and attractions throughout the UP in Michigan and then into door county. The last thing we wanted to do was pay for more entrance fees (after paying to get into the park). Perhaps... More
