3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We arrived too late to tour inside but enjoyed the walk around the site and lakeshore. Great view of the bridge at night.

“Small Lighthouse with a lot to offer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse is a must-visit while in the area! We happened to get a "private" tour, since there was nobody else there at the time. Our Tour Guide was very well-versed on the history. She was eager to answer any questions as well. The top of the Lighthouse has stellar views of The Mighty Mac Bridge and Lake Huron. **If you plan to do several State Park ventures, make sure to check out the Trio ticket, which is a great value.

The narrator was beyond excellent. My husband and I were the only visitors at the time so the narrator helped us take special pictures from the top of the lighhouse. The historical film was film was well done and interesting.

“Excellent Lighthouse Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Wife and I really enjoyed the tour of this lighthouse. Easily accessible to everything in Mackinaw City and friendly, knowledgable staff at the lighthouse. The gentleman staffing the top of the lighthouse gave us great details about the job of a lighthouse keeper, the daily life routines, and requirements. Tremendous detail in the explanations, as he really knew his stuff. I would highly recommend this tour to all.

“Lighthouse History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Very informative, view of bridge Lake Huron and Lake Michigan.
Many spiral steps and ladder to climb to the top but well worth the walk
