The lighthouse is beautiful and there is a nice walkway down to the lake. There is a small sandy beach area with some pretty stones. There was only a few other people there when we visited in the middle of the week. Lots of benches to enjoy the view and shady areas to picnic.

Took this tour 3 years ago. Awesome!! The view of Lake Michigan and Racine from the top was phenomenal. We had a clear, sunny day that made it all the better.

I first went here in early July during a training run for the Racine Half Ironman race. I took my son here again after the 2016 race. The site is very well maintained and informative. The views and sounds are awesome. I will make many more trips here in the future to bring friends and family.

The Wind Point Lighthouse offers great grounds to view with easy accessibility to all. A short stroll will bring you to Lake Michigan where you can kick off your shoes and feel the sand on your feet or even dip your toe in the water. The Lighthouse offers tours up to the top certain days of the year providing even... More

I have never been to the Great Lakes until this visit so the only lighthouses I've seen are the ones in Florida. This Lighthouse was much smaller than ocean lighthouses. The price was ridiculous in my opinion especially when I saw how small it was. there's a small rocky Beach and a few buildings with signs, but overall the grounds... More

Loved the serenity, a history on itz own, close to Lake Michigan, neat beach and accessible by car. The Lighthouse is a must visit in the evening

Beautiful lighthouse. Arrived as sun was setting, got great pictures of sunset behind light tower. Grounds were well kept and weather was perfect.

Except for flies biting you, it's beautiful. The lighthouse is historical and well kept. Great for photos and getting time to think. They should spray for those flies that bite.

Enjoyed the visit here, and the views of the lake. The lighthouse was not open, so not able to do the walk to the top, which is available on some days during the summer. Still, the grounds and area is quite scenic and interesting.

Thank Ralph E
