“Beautiful scenic view of Lake Michigan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

This small park includes the lighthouse and a rocky beach. It's a lovely spot to watch the sunrise, or the crashing waves. I've never been there when the lighthouse buildings have been open to the public. Great place for a photo shoot or picnic!

“Bridal shower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

Have been here twice. Once to pick up gifts for the ladies after the shower. The inside of the residence building and actual lighthouse are not open to the public but is available for rent. It is an old structure. The outside is nice to walk around for a half hour to read and learn about the lighthouse. No washrooms or venders. Not good for close up photos of the lighthouse because it is so massive you look like an ant standing next to it. The grounds are pretty and it is a great place to have a picnic lunch.

“Beautiful lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

This lighthouse is one of the best I've seen, the grounds and lakefront are beautiful. The tower of the lighthouse is only open on certain days so be sure to call first. But even if the tower is not open the grounds, lighthouse and fog horn house itself should not be missed.
