Beautiful location, interesting history. The light house can be toured in an hour. Further north in Lake Park are hiking trails, an 18 hole public par 3 golf course, and a large playground. Lunch at Lake Park Bistro offers lovely views and delicious French Fare....More

The views from and around this lovely lighthouse are really gorgeous. Whilst we were there, an oil tanker passed by, which was also red, making for a wonderful photograph!

The lighthouse has been well preserved and has several interesting exhibits, along with folks who will guide you through them. The climb to the top of the lighthouse is limited to children at least 10 years old (as I remember it), but it's not hard...More

I was visiting my daughter in Milwaukee and we were walking in a park when we came upon the lighthouse. It is stunning outside, so we looked to see if it was open. It wasn’t (hours are limited since it relies almost exclusively on volunteers)...More

Visited with my grandchildren. They were so excited to earn an official certificate for climbing to the top. Gorgeous grounds and hiking trails.

My wife and I were sightseeing in Milwaukee and stopped at the North Point Lighthouse. It has an interesting history and is worth the stop if you are in the area. The homes you drive by to get to it are amazing as well.

Made for an interesting visit. They explained the history of the lighthouses and the different artifacts. We enjoyed it and taking photos around the gardens. It was perfectly located near the walking trails. I recommend if you have some free time to explore.

Pretend you're on the coast of Maine, find a great spot on a sunny day with blue sky and steady your easel. It's a great place to express yourself on canvass.

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
