What a beautiful sunset!

Went to the pier right before sunset, and it was beautiful! The boats were all coming in when the sun set and I got great pictures. So relaxing!

Spent the evening at the lighthouse and it is well worth the visit if you like lighthouses. There is a fee for parking but then again it is well worth it. Plan on spending time taking pictures and wandering around the lighthouse. I was told it is a great fishing sight and saw quite a few people fishing.

we were too late in the season for a tour of the lighthouse, but we were blessed with mild weather and calm waters so we could walk up to it several times. Very well maintained and classic looking light house.

A close up view during sunsets is amazing as is a walk on a windy day. The lighthouse is a landmark for St. Joseph and is beautiful at any time of day or in any weather.

Take pictures fro Silver Beach or Tiscornia Park. Parking at Silver Beach is $10 unless you can find parking in downtown St. Joseph which we did. Tiscornia Park is $5 parking and you can take pitied from the sand dunes as well as walk out to the lighthouses. The concrete on the pier is rough so be careful. You can... More

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.
