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 lighthouse tour was excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and able to answer any and all questions. It was quite an insite into the lives of lighthouse keepers and their families in days gone bye .

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.

We just missed the half-hour tour and were crunched for time, so just looked around the grounds. Interesting place - would recommend taking the tour.

We were told tours take place every half hour. We were hoping to catch the 1:30 slot but were told two groups were coming back to back and no more public tours available until 3:30. The docents were pleasant in explaining but it was a disappointment anyway. Cute lighthouse. Lovely view. We moved on and found something else to do.

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
