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.

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

Great spot in Peninsula State Park to check out the view of the Bay. Especially recommended for a beautiful sunset. The lighthouse itself is not accessible but the grounds are pretty and it's worth a stop.

Beautiful lighthouse in Peninsula State Park that is full of history. We strongly recommend the lighthouse tour. The Docent was so friendly and knowledgeable. My kids even learned a lot. Only with the tour can you go inside the living quarters and climb up toward the lens. If you have a larger group, they offer a family rate which saved... More

This light house has a lot of history. It has been preserved very well. The guide was excellent. She created the olden days in front of our eyes. The wife of the Lighthouse keeper must have had no time to get depressed. She would have been one busy lady. Also one understands the value of discipline in children.
