Cute little lighthouse. It is located near Lake Michigan, but not located right on the water. It is located within the park. Our tour guide had told us it use to be closer to the water, but had to be moved. Worth stopping to snap...More

A very well-maintained piece of Milwaukee history. The view was good, but the lake was a bit hard to see through the trees. The museum hours are limited, so it'd be worth planning ahead if you're interested in the history

The North Point Lighthouse is located in a lovely setting inside of Lake Park. There are walking trails that you can take in any direction from the lighthouse. Tour the lighthouse, walk the park and enjoy!

Great views, well maintain, beautiful surrounding areas, great pictures. We did not go inside, just wander around and sit for awhile.

Stopped here as we waited for our daughter to takes placements tests at UWM. The grounds are beautiful and restoration of the lighthouse and keepers are are wonderful.

A very stately lighthouse, white and well-maintained. But where is the water? Maybe if I Photoshop this edifice to the end of a rocky point it would be more impressive. Best images of it will be in the fall at sunrise.

Chose a good day to check out the park and the lighthouse. Wasn't able to go in but it looks really well maintained and a nice place to have a picnic.

The lighthouse was recently repainted and is a beautiful accent for a walk in the park that borders the lake. It has limited touring hours and we missed those, but the grounds are nice and the story of the lighthouse is interesting.

Yes, Pat, we certainly do still hand certificates out for climbing. They were initially intended for kids, but we realized that many adults wanted them as well; so just ask for yours at the desk! We are currently closed... More
