We wanted so much to see this beautiful lighthouse on our recent trip to upper Michigan. However after driving several miles and barely making it through deep mud holes we had to abort the mission....only possible if there has been no rain or snow.

This is a beautiful light on a beautiful beach, but be prepared for an interesting trek to get there. The road is just a bit better than a two track and is definitely rugged. We did pass a few vehicles coming in the opposite direction and with care passing is easy, however there is 15 miles of this rugged terrain to get to the light, then you have to take it back. I tackled it in a GMC Acadia and I'm not sure I'd have wanted to try it in my old Lacrosse. It is a beautiful little light. It was worth the trip and if you like rock hunting, it's a gold mine.

Beautiful lighthouse and grounds. Real bathrooms open to the public to! BUT that road!!!!! Came in from Newberry and left towards Grand Marais. We knew exactly what we were in for... Rough, muddy, wet, potholes and mud holes for miles and miles. We actually had a blast watching out of state tourists try to navigate the terrible roads!

LONG drive (28 miles?) down a dirt road (16 miles) that turns into a two-track (12 miles) that ends at a small parking lot at the Crisp Point Lighthouse. You really need to what for the small signs (either small brown/white signs on side of the road or small white arrows attached to trees) to get back to the lighthouse. Depending on the weather, the roads/two-track may be impassable. We were in a 4x4 truck which made it with no problem. A lot of bumps, drops and waterholes to go thru along the way.

Beautiful fall color ride. Brought our lunch. Rough ride on 412 due to all the rain. Glad we had the truck. Beautiful beach and cool lighthouse. So glad we made the drive.
