It's a beautiful drive from Fish Creek. The tractor ride to the island from the parking lot was my favorite part, our driver was hilarious! Once there you pay 7.00 to see the lighthouse, 5.00 extra to climb it! All monies, including tips go towards the preservation of the lighthouse, definitely worth the price. Took me a while to climb... More

Most were really awesome, this one the road was flooded and the tractor was going, however you must pay before even seeing the outside of this lighthouse, the prices were wayyy too sleep comparing to other lighthouses we have seen.. I had no interest to see the inside only the outside, but Should... More

We enjoyed visiting this old lighthouse. You can actually enter and climb the steps. The surrounding water is so clear - you can get some beautiful photos.

Just north of town on County Road "Q" is the Cana Island Road. The day we were there, the water level was higher than normal--WET--and a tractor took us across the six-inch deep water in places--walk if you like--to the entrance to the park and lighthouse. There is an admission fee, and then a separate $5 if you want to... More

This 150 year old landmark is well worth the admission price. The view from the top of the lighthouse is beautiful. Interesting rooms and history.

Thank you for your great review. We believe the Cana Island Light Station is worth the time and work we put into her. Admission pricing goes to keep the station in tact and helps to restore her for many years and visitors to come. More

Thank you for your review. We have been blessed with a group of volunteers who have given of their time to help with our high water year. It is a fun new attraction when available. We also encourage visitors to wear water shoes when they cross the wet causeway by foot. More

One can walk out to the lighthouse (for a small fee) and go through the light keepers house and read about the history of the house and the light keepers, for an additional fee you can go up the approximate 100 steps to the top of the lighthouse. It is a nice place to see and learn about the history... More

The lighthouse is on a small island accessible via a causeway. The causeway has varying degrees of water, you will get your feet wet. There is a tractor and wagon to shuttle you across at no charge. There is a $7 fee to see the island and exhibits. $5 extra if you want to climb to the observation deck(worth it).... More

Door County has several lighthouses and this is a good one. They have just completed major improvements. It is a unique setting since it is on an island. You walk across to the island on a gravel walkway that can be wet depending on the lake level and the size of the waves. Great history and a chance to enjoy... More

Thank you for your review. Islands and lighthouses are certainly in abundance in Door County. The Door County Maritime Museum works with other "friends" and nonprofit groups to keep these lighthouses from disappearing into oblivion. More
