It was a drive there and at times I thought I was on the wrong road to see this lighthouse the. All of a sudden there it is. It's cool to see a part of Lake Michigan history dating back to the 1800's. They even have very nice restrooms. There is a little place with a beach area where you... More

We found this place a few years ago, and the beauty and serenity continue to welcome us here. It's a perfect spot for a quiet picnic for two, taking in the panoramic Lake Michigan views, and carving out some time to reconnect. Last 4th of July we came here and had a wonderful picnic. Amazingly, it wasn't crowded despite being... More

Beautiful drive & scenery bring you to this "off the road" little piece of history. Delightful & educational. Explains lighthouses, their important need and place in our history and how they worked. I plan to return when the Museum is open. Check their website for times and scheduled trips up the 140 steps to the top. There is a per... More

This was our second visit. We had a lot of time to kill, but hate the cold weather. Although we only spent about five minutes on the pier outside the lighthouse due to the lake winds, it was so worth it. It was very cold, foggy afternoon. The actual pier was covered in ice from the water sprays, along with... More
