“Great find along our road trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were headed up the coast of Lake Superior and saw the signs for the lighthouse, so we decided to stop in. A nice surprise. Great little exhibits and a quick walk out to the lighthouse. What a view from there! Wish we had time to do some of the hiking trails in that area.

“Icon of North Shore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Long before you even see the sign for the lighthouse you will notice its beacon. The entrance is well marked, with numerous parking spaces including places to park an rv. Inside the visitor center you will find lots of history on the lighthouse, a huge gift shop containing thousands of items nautical. Very clean restrooms. The ticket price for adults is $9. The grounds around the lighthouse are beautiful. The lighthouse itself is beautiful to behold and the views of Lake Superior are stunning! Adjacent to the lighthouse are many trails within the state park that lead to even more views of the lighthouse from the shoreline.

“Superior light house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Very cold the day we went and this was in june! Lighthouse has a tour available for its guests. we decided to go on our own excursion around the site for great uninterrupted pictures. A really long set of steps are available to bring you close to the pump house which is about 300 yards away from the actual lightouse but makes for a spectacular view when you are shore side off the rocks looking at the light house on its high rise cliff.

Beautiful site with guided tours & friendly staff. This is a must see when up on the north shore. There are also hiking trails in the area with easy paved paths & picnic areas.
