If you are in the Traverse City area, it is a nice day trip and well worth the drive up M-22 - very scenic with a number of small towns on the way with unique shops and dining establishments. Admission to the lighthouse grounds is free but there is a $5 charge to climb the lighthouse which offers amazing views... More

We paid the five dollars each to walk up to the top of the lighthouse and tour it. There was an older gentleman who walked around with us and gave us historical information about the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered questions that we had. The view from the top of the lighthouse was exquisite. The grounds around the... More

You can walk up to the top of the lighthouse. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes at most. The small museum is interesting. It doesn't take more 45 minutes are so to see everything.

The North Point Lighthouse is a great visit to stretch your legs and walk the path behind the site with views of the lake. The history of the lighthouse reveals how things change over time.

I enjoyed walking the grounds and the park area near the lighthouse during my city tour with Untapped Tours. The sights are nice from this location.

The off its visited the North Point Lighthouse, and since it wasn't busy, we got a very enjoyable personal tour. The museum part of the lighthouse has a couple of lanterns as well as a nice description of how lighthouse work. In addition, there are portraits and stories of the lighthouse keepers and a pirate ship plus the lake. For... More

Saw this on the Untapped tour and while it was nice to see a lighthouse and the waterfall, it would not be worth a trip solely to see this unless you are into lighthouses. It is unique that the lighthouse was separated and added to so it is now taller.
