This was a really interesting one hour stop on our tour of the Lake Huron coastline. This lighthouse is tucked away in a nice park where lots of folks have weekend homes - trailer or fixed houses. A drive through the residences brings you to a nice brick house that the lighthouse keeper lived in and a nice lighthouse. You can go up to the top of the light house on only certain days of the year. (Unfortunately, we missed that day by a week, but that was not a huge disappointment.) The house is filled with interesting artifacts and displays about the many shipwrecks in Lake Huron, and the life of the lighthouse keeper. We were recently at the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse, and while this museum is much smaller, it is equally interesting.
Afterwards,stop by the adjacent beach and enjoy the beautiful view!
