Beautiful old lighthouse on a bluff overlooking the bay and lake. Great docents to provide a tour through the lighthouse and describe life during the time it was active in the late 1800s. An older gentleman who grew up i the lighthouse, provided the staff with many memories and advice to furnish the house as it was in it's heyday.... More

It was a great little stop where you can get some nice pictures of lighthouse and Green Bay, but it is not super amazing.

The true life history of this beautifully and originally restored light house was worth the visit and the minimal fee. The docents are friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Ours was a retired teacher and excellent with children. When the light house was commissioned to be restored, a young boy from one of the original photos, now a grown elderly man, personally...

Beautiful view and very interesting story of the Lighthouse. The last living relative was able to give first hand stories about the Lighthouse. I couldn't believe that 7 boys actually slept in one room!

If you are Peninsula State Park, you can stop by the lighthouse but plan to pay $7 per person for the guided tour to hear anything about it or to go inside (which we did not).

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
