This lighthouse was recently opened to the public (May 2012) and there has been a lot of great work done. I am an avid lighthouse visitor and it was great to be able to explore the grounds and buildings of this important part of Michigan history. I was traveling the Lake Huron coast this Labor Day weekend with a friend and this was our last stop of the day. Great views of the water and bridge to Canada from the grounds. I paid the $7 to take the tour. It was a large group and I wasn't very impressed with the volunteer who led our group - it seemed to take a long time without a lot of new information for me. The tour takes you inside the dwelling which is very modernized and can be rented out for stay (lots of bunk beds mostly used by boy scout and girl scout groups). The best part of the tour was being able to climb the tower. A staff member leads the way up the stairs and you must wear tennis shoes/closed toed shoes to go up. Amazing views from the top as always. The staff member (different person than who led the tour) was very nice, answered all my questions and even offered to take my picture (my friend did not want to go on the tour with me).
There is still more to be restored at this site but they have already done amazing work. I must see if you are in the area - just down the road from the historic Huron Lightship.
