Its a great place to visit for all but especially for nautical history enthusiasts. There is also some Manitoulin Island history.

I always go here to look for fossils along the beach. The lighthouse looks cool but its usually closed when i'm there. Nice spot to have a picnic, explore and enjoy the view!

Quaint, but not much to see. View is nice over the lake. Did not see a trail or something else to do
