“Busy place but very nice atmosphere”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Visited here while leisurely driving around Marblehead for a day. This park gets very busy on Saturday. I saw multiple wedding parties taking pictures around the lighthouse and the general area along with many people just hanging out near the water watching the waves or the boats. The lighthouse is nice but nothing spectacular. I think it's more about the park in general now. Could be difficult to find parking if they are busy. Also gives a nice view of Cedar Point from a different perspective. Nice place to spend a few hours and maybe eat lunch.

Fabulous lighthouse in a beautiful setting on Lake Erie. Great place to stop for a short visit or bring a picnic to enjoy the day. Great place to take photos.

“Lighthouse at Lake Erie”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is a beautiful old lighthouse (longest continually operating one on lake), which is now a state park. It's very relaxing to just have a picnic or watch the sailboats on a summer evening.

“Beautiful Lighthouse”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The rocky coast was pretty, as was the lighthouse. The tours were done for the season when we were there but the outside was nice. The small museum was open and we wandered through. The lady working the desk was overwhelmed by the Labor Day crowd but she worked as fast as she could. They were expecting a Navy Band later in the day and the park looked like a nice place to have a picnic.
