It was so beautiful and serene here. I told my husband that I can sit there and just enjoy the view all day! Make sure to stop by!

Gorgeous historic lighthouse
Jul 2021 • Solo
Beautifully preserved lighthouse that was first lit in 1880. Free to roam the grounds, which are gorgeous. There are gardens, and informative plaques throughout. The shoreline is gorgeous there. Plenty of parking.

Nice lighthouse
Jun 2021 • Couples
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.

Lighthouses are always on our radar!
Wind Point did not disappoint! The grounds are beautiful and the view awesome.
The lighthouse was not open when we visited however walking the grounds is worth a stop!

Beautiful views
Jun 2021 • Friends
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.

Nice lighthouse with historical fog horn buildings.

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.

Beautiful and Relaxing
Aug 2020
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.

This is a great place to stop and enjoy views of Lake Michigan. It is a great place for pictures and neat to see the lighthouse.

Very nice small park on the shores of the Great Lake Michigan.
Oct 2019
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.

Beautiful setting and open a few times a year
Aug 2019
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.
