“Got some interesting pictures”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

It was cold and very foggy the day we were here and a little errie. Could barely see the lighthouse, but you could hear the fog horn, so we got a glimpse of what a boat captian might be seeing and hearing traveling on Lake Superior. Tried to maneuver over the rocks to get to the lighthouse but after slipping once decided against it. Got some cool pictures and wife sort of got to see Lake Superior.

“Not very tourist friendly”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Not well marked once you get off the main road and not much to see once you get there. Very inferior to the Minnesota side.

“Don't go here”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

This is not a tourist attraction. The city has all but forgotten about this place. It is abandoned. The LONG road in is awful. There are very large pot holes all the way down. Down here you will find locals swimming and kids partying. it is also well known in Superior that cars get broken into a lot. Like another reviewer said, if you go here do not have anything of value in your car. Youcan see ships come in but if you want to do that, go over to Canal Park in Duluth where it is cared for and safe.

“Good place to see bald eagles!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I was there doing some winter birding. It's a great area for birding any time of year, and esp. good for anyone wanting to see bald eagles!

“great place nice view clear water sand”
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,
