Just stopped by to snap a few pictures while on the Untapped Tour bus. Nice view of Lake Michigan. Might have taken the tour if we had the time. The price is a bit high, but a lot of these lighthouse "friends" groups operate with volunteers only, and on shoestring budgets. What they charge usually goes right back into the... More

Well worth the visit and walk through the Fredrick Law Olmested designed park in which the lighthouse resides. Very interesting to be able to climb to the top of the lighthouse and see the view.

This is such a neat place, you have to hike a little bit to get to it, but it is a nice walk to get to it. It overlooks Lake Michigan, and is very worth finding.

A cool little tour of the light house. Beautiful grounds, informative staff, interesting history. They have a nice area in the house dedicated to pictures and some objects from WI history. We also took a path down from the grounds to a beach on Lake Michigan.

Enjoyed our visit to the lighthouse. Lake Park is a beautiful park and the lighthouse is worth a visit. The exhibits are interesting and the view from the top is wonderful.

This lighthouse is so pretty & worth the drive off the highway through town to find it. The setting is lovely & great for pictures. We did not go up the lighthouse & wish we would have been there the next day because they were going to be having an event there that sounded great.
