This is off the beaten path in Door County and absolutely marvelous! You walk onto the island and can hike around the lighthouse which is directly on the lake. Stunning! Pay the extra money to go to the top of the lighthouse; the views are breathtaking (so are the stairs!)

This lighthouse is definitely worth a stop. It is the only lighthouse in door county that actually lets you up on top to walk around the outside!

Ahoy! Thanks for the great review...the climb to the top of the lighthouse tower is definitely a thrill. Fun to imagine what it must have been like for the lighthouse keepers when they had to carry oil for the lamp up those 97 steps!

Our group of 14 enjoyed the Cana lighthouse. The workers are very friendly and knowledgeable. We climbed the steps and had quite a view a view at the top and even saw a huge freighter carrying iron ore on Lake Michigan. There is also a video to watch as well as rooms that have descriptions of how the lighthouse operated. The parking lot is almost complete but for now you park on the road and walk across a causeway to the lighthouse.

Great day trip. Causeway is rocky so where sturdy shoes. Wonderful historic light, lovely view/scenery. Sorry you now have to pay admission but that's what keeps it running. We had family picture taken here

Ahoy! Thanks much for the great review, wonderful to hear you enjoyed your visit. A portion of your admission fee will go toward a major restoration of the lighthouses and out buildings...we hope to get started this fall! Come back in a couple of years and see how things are progressing. Thanks again.
