Pretty little lighthouse that is visible from Silver Beach. There are 2 piers, one to take great photos of the lighthouse and the other to visit the lighthouse. It is small and not nearly as impressive as other lighthouses I have seen but it still provided a great subject for photos.

I use the video webcam telecast as my computer screen saver. There is always something going on. It intrigued me enough to travel to the lighthouse for a day trip with my wife. I found the mounted camera in a place I didn't expect. We thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Sits on the north side of the jetty. Can get nice pictures of the lighthouse from south jetty but can't get to it. Nice beaches on both sides.

If you like lighthouses the way my wife does, you will enjoy seeing this. We parked at Tiscornia park (the only access close by) for $5 and walked all the way out on the pier to the light house. It was really neat to see it up close. I did wish that they would have tours or something so you... More

This is a beautiful walk to take. We were in Saint Joseph for two days the summer of August 2016, and walked to the lighthouse a few times. It's really great being able to walk out and see the beautiful blue water. It was a wonderful experience. We would definitely come back and bring our kids.

Although you can see this light house from Silver Beach you have to drive over to Tiscornia beach to walk out to the light house. We did that and found that Tiscornia beach area to be very nice too. Our kids climbed the small sand dunes there after our walk to the light house. Very nice area!

Simply true Americana at it's best, Taps at Sunset brings me chills! So very grateful to have found this oasis in the Midwest and looking forward to my next visit in a few weeks!

We were here on a beautiful and sunny day. Growing up not far from NJ shore I find it fascinating to see a lake that looks like the sea!

I was in Granger Indiana visiting family and my Dad and I took the day trip up to St. Joseph. I was shocked the water was so blue! We parked at Tiscornia beach and walked down to the lighthouse. It's on the opposite side of the river from Silver Beach. Parking was five dollars and it was SIGNIFICANTLY less crowded.... More
