“Great Viewing place”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Loved the sandy beach including all the rocks there. Didn't go into lighthouse but the area was neat to stop to view all Lake Superior. Water was cold but the kids still played in the water, looking for unique rocks.

“Do not miss if you are in the area”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Whitefish point has the bell of the Edmund Fitzgerald and a great ship wreck museum. There is also a bird look out, the beach where you can look for fossils and the light house.

You can spend hours here easy. Don't miss it.

“Great view wonderful nostalgia!”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Walk up 90 stairs to full 360 degree view of the point! The reality of small family life in the tower and attached house must have been really isolated!

“Favorite Lighthouse”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

This is my favorite lighthouse because of how wonderful the inside off the lighthouse was kept. It looks like someone has been still living there and keeping it up. The wood floors and mouldings are beautiful. They do have some mannequins representing different people that lived there in the lighthouse. On the outside the inside doesn't look that big, but once you are inside you realize how big the living quarters are. I believe at some time during history they added on to this lighthouse. It's a great thing to see as part of the Shipwreck Museum trip. I also heard that it's haunted! It was once featured on the discovery channel's "Ghost Lab". A must see if you are ever in Whitefish Point!
