Spent an afternoon here with my 9 and 11 year old grandchildren. We climbed to the top and purchased the reasonably priced bragging t-shirts. Beautiful grounds and beach, and easy access. My grandson found a wallet and returned it to the officers onsite and their...More

Watch the paper for times when you can climb the lighthouse stairs and take in the beautiful views. Nice in fall especially.

It is a good place to take pictures of the lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is actually not open very often. I was surprised to see people surfing on Lake Michigan on a 12F day.

Often we have seen this place open for public tours 2-3 times per year and there are plenty of us who enjoy visiting lighthouses! The grounds are kept very well and there is easy access.
