Beautiful light house on the shores of the majestic Lake Michigan. There are pretty flower gardens, picnic tables, and benches near the shore line where you can sit and relax taking in the beauty of the sail boats in the distance and the sounds of the waves hitting the huge rocks. Clean restrooms are available. The light house has tours with the opportunity to climb the tall tower (fee applies for climb) for a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Playing in the water on the small beach is permitted although there is no lifeguards. Seating near the shore is limited so I would recommend bringing a camp chair or a blanket and picnic.

A relative took me to this peaceful lighthouse on a very cold (12 degree) day in February, and I enjoyed it very much! Since it was so cold, most of the time we stayed in the car in the large parking lot right next to Lake Michigan. The snow and ice added to the beautiful scenery. From their website, it looks like they allow people to go inside and climb the tower a few days each year. For warmer months, there are outside restrooms, a beach area, and gardens. Very relaxing place!

Incredible place to take photos of a lighthouse in winter. The lighthouse sitting on the banks of Lake Michigan would be picturesque any time of the year, but the white lighthouse tower in snow was breathtaking. There is a nice beach area and the freeze covered the rocks and trees in a thick coating of ice.

Cute lighthouse that is about 45 minutes south of Milwaukee. Parking was ample. The lighthouse current does not offer any tours due to COVID however it was still cool to see. The beach near the lighthouse has several benches where you can sit and relax by the lake. Swimming is available if you desire.

Its a gorgeous lighthouse on the shores of Lake Michigan. They sponsor open climes a few times a year, and recently added full moon climbs with dinner. These sell out in a flash. Check the Wind Point Lighthouse website for details.

I had no idea that Lake Michigan was so blue. Really beautiful views of the lake in a nice spot with benches and a rocky coastline.
The lighthouse didn’t appear to be open, so we just looked from the outside. The lake views are really the star of the show there. We brought a blanket and had packed lunch under a tree. We spent some time on the very short path watching the waves and skipping stones.

We could only see the outside of the keeper’s quarters and lighthouse. Definitely worth a visit! Well kept-up grounds and beautiful tower. Many photo ops. We also enjoyed sitting on a bench by the shore to enjoy the beautiful day and waves.

Gorgeous winter day at Wind Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse is still in use but not the nearby foghorn house. Benches along the lake afford a wonderful view. Lovely small park nearby and one of the vintage buildings has indoor space which can be rented for events.

Very windy (and slightly colder) than rest of city but nice visit. The rocky coast has a dirt path you can follow until you reach private homes. Nice green area and benches to sit and enjoy the scenery.

Who would of thought you could have such a beatuiful Lighthouse in the Mid-West. The grounds are neat and clean, but the area is small. Right along side a golf course, so lots of green space. Fun place for some sightseeing if your close to the area. The lighthouse was not open for inside views or tourism, just the park.
