Drove up here to have dinner and got here too early so did a few of the parks. This one was the last one and we actually got sunset photos similar to the one shown on TA......nice.

The lighthouse sits at the end of the pier and it seems like it takes forever to get to it. The walkway leading to the lighthouse can get pretty slippery so be cautious while walking..

If you want to record great sunsets, you need to visit the lakefront at Ludington and capture the lighthouse. Even better when waves are breaking over the seawall.

Nice view out on the pier and quick climb to the top. This lighthouse has some steep ladder stairs and made me a little nervous with my 3 year old. We all made it to the top though and enjoyed the view!
