“great place nice view clear water sand”

Wisconsin Point Lighthouse
Ranked #3 of 19 things to do in Superior
Attraction details
Reviewed March 6, 2013

good place to come and see the worlds largest fresh water lake
the one bad thing is that lake Superior water is allways cold

i have come here many times in 2010 with friends from church and we have never had a problem with being robbed,or trash being all over not sure what all the reviews about that are about, it always has been clean and nice sand to make sand castles in the road is a bit narrow But the cost to go to wi point is free, the lighthouse is cool it is a bit of a walk across large rocks not suggest going out the the lighthouse with small kids.

nice view, would for sure come back. the light house did have a lot of bird droppings on it when we came,

The drive in is a nice road in the fall with all the colors. But on the way in you pass some trash cans that belong to the state/town and that looks just aweful. There really isn't a sign on the highway telling the Lighthouse is even down there, just a small sign saying something that wouldn't let visitors know it was down there. People party down there it looks like so that can be a mess. Other wise it can be something nice to see in this small town/area. This is where I got proposed to.

Wisconsin Point is quite & peaceful compared to Minnesota Point, which is residential. The birding is excellent. When you get to the end, you are right at the entry where ships come into the harbor (the Superior Entry).

I have to admit, usually I read reviews on trip advisor before i go to places but since we were in the area, we decided to check out Wisconsin Point Lighthouse. We drove down the road and decided to get out to take a few pictures of the Lake. We locked our car and no valuables were in plain sight. Upon arriving back at our vehicle 10 minutes later, we found the trunk lid ajar and the drivers window smashed. All of our belongings inside the vehicle were gone. Yes, they took our luggage and all. The police stated that this "happens all the time" out here. I agree with the reviewer a few months prior to my review, if you go, take everything out of your car and leave it unlocked to save yourself a headache from dealing with insurance due to vandalism.

Always a good time had when searching the shore line for those beautiful rocks! Water of course is chilly, but there is always some crazy locals swimming in that water like it is a coastal beach. But it is always a cool spot on a hot summer day. The drive is a bit rough. It takes alot of attention to go around that rough road, but it is beautiful when you reach your destination.
