This is a wonderfully preserved lighthouse. The view outside is great of the Bay, but the lighthouse guide made the stop really exciting!

I would say, nothing spectacular or new, but a great rest stop when traveling the Sunset Trail through Peninsula State Park. I have only seen East Coast lighthouses, so it was interesting to see a different type of structure.

This is a wonderful lighthouse to visit. The house is furnished with many of the original pieces from the family who lived there in the 1800's. It has been nicely maintained and is a beautiful view of the lake. I was not impressed with the...More

I recommend going on the tour. The guide was very informative about the history of the lighthouse. They have pictures of the people that lived there. Explained how they had to haul water from Lake Superior up the cliff

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse was one the few lighthouses in Door County, that is fully restored and offers tours and climbing to the top! We were blessed to get a one on one tour and our guide was amazing!

One of the historical lighthouses on Green Bay, this one is almost completely obscured by the trees which have grown around it. It is well supplied with information boards and sits in an attractive location.More

Great lighthouse tour of meticulously restored keeper's residence and light. Well worth the price. So interesting to learn about the families who lived there.

We were a large group. A guide met our bus dressed in clothing of a light keeper. He shared information of what it was like for a light keeper and family to live in a lighthouse year round. History shared at its finest.

The distance from the parking lot to the lighthouse is not very far, however taking the tour does require standing for an hour and you must be able to climb stairs. I hope this is not a limitation for you. Sincerely, Trudy... More

Unfortunately, as a historic site, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse has limited accessibility. Currently the only room that is accessible is the winter kitchen. Trudy Herbst, Executive Director
