“Beautiful Area on the Peninsula”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

If you are visiting any of the vineyard/wineries on the peninsula a stop at Old Mission Point is definitely worth it. We visited in mid-October and the fall color along M-37 was breathtaking. The lighthouse isn't very tall but the surroundings are picturesque and the restored log cabin at the same location is educational. There is a $5 charge to climb up to the top of the three story structure but no charge to check out the first floor and small gift shop.

“Michigan Lighthouse”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

One of many lighthouses constructed along Lake Michigan. This lighthouse is now a museum that has memorabilia about the lighthouse and the Lighthouse Service. Not the most unique or famous of the Michigan lighthouses, it is worth a visit

“Beautiful setting!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

The light house has many picturesque views and a small museum inside. There is also a log cabin to look at. You can walk along the water and play with the rocks. I took many pictures here and stayed for probably 45 minutes looking over everything. Worth the trip to the end of the peninsula after a long day of wine tasting. And very romantic too!

“History buffs must-see”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

A day on the Old Mission Peninsula began with a stop at Lighthouse Park. A must-see for history buffs. Walk out onto the rocky shore and further north to the very end of the peninsula, where there is a small trodden path. Shoes (not flipflops) recommended. For a small fee, you can climb the stairs inside the lighthouse (tho we did not). There is also a rustic house, featuring an audio narration of its history. Outhouse on the grounds, as is a small picnic area.

“Scenic spot”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Nice place to stop and stretch your legs. We didn't do the tour but the beach was lovely. It is a nice stop for a picnic too.
