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.

The lighthouse was closed on the Friday we visited however they had an event the evening prior and were cleaning up so they allowed us to climb the tower. It was awesome. We did leave a donation for their generosity of opening the tower to us on our only day in Milwaukee. Many thanks and if you get an opportunity... More

The light house is super cute but far away from all other attractions. It took us a while to figure out where it was because it is not exactly where you would think a light house would be located. It's on the top of a hill hidden behind trees. Barely visible from the lake. When we went it was closed.... More

This is a great outing and you learn a lot about the history of the lighthouse. The staff is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and answers any questions you have. We enjoyed climbing to the top and the awesome views. I've taken kids on field trips climbing to the top can be a little daunting for kids younger than 9 or people... More

We've lived in Wisconsin for 2 years and have been to North Point Lighthouse twice - and will definitely return again. The first time we went, it was a hot day. We climbed to the very top and boy was it HOT! Great view, though. The second time we went it was an inordinately freezing day. I didn't think I'd... More

On weekends bwt 1 and 4pm, you can enjoy a docent tour. Admission is $5. Museum at the base is interesting, and the climb to the top is fun. Wear appropriate shoes for climbing a ladder (at the top), and I'd advise against doing this on a hot day. Combine this visit with a leisurely stroll around Lake Park /... More
