Interesting historical sight with great history. Still well preserved. View over Lake Huron was stunning. There was a full moon the evening we were there. Breathing. The lake had white caps crashing along the shoreline. It was beautiful.

Great view of the lake and north to the ship harbour. Stairs down to the beach are available. Great spot to have a picnic or grab some takeout from the Parkhouse.

The view over the beach and harbour are excellent. We could have done with a little more history of the lighthouse when we arrived. The park itself is very small. This can be completed in a very few minutes.

I love light houses trying to see as many as I can in Ontario and beyond. They give some of the history so you can know when it was in operation

I walked to the lighthouse from below (plenty of stairs from the beach area!) to check out the lighthouse. There is some signage with historical information and the lighthouse has a few benches nearby with great views of the water and beach below. It was...More

In the Kincardine area I had to stop her and check out the wheel city or the most beautiful city in Ontario as they call it. Since the tornado hit a few years ago, they did a great job fixing up the down town. The...More
