Can't say enough positive about this historical site. Great setting with hiking trails nearby. The inside museum is very nicely done with an awesome view of the lighthouse from inside.

“My Favorite Lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

This has to be one of the most beautiful lighthouse in the world.
I have taken pictures of over a 1,000 lighthouses and this is my favorite.

“Bike riding and north shore visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The view is beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. Enjoyed it, we rode bike on the
Biking trail. Very hilly from gooseberry falls campground to split rock but worth it!

“Great Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visited Split Rock Lighthouse State Park in July and walked the trail down the stairs by the old rail system. It was quite a few stairs, and not for those physically challenged. The view was worth it though! Be prepared for a good aerobic workout!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

It's a beautiful spot and definitely worth the stop. We didn't do the guided tour and there's plenty of people around to ask questions so you don't really need to do this.
