Felt like we were in another state. cool lighthouse and nice museum to tell the story of the keepers, their travails and life 100 or more years ago - including the First Lady lighthouse keeper who was in command for seven years. Really nice --...More

A much quieter visit on the weekday. Not a lot of foot traffic and actually could find a parking space today. Beautiful views of the lake and Cedar Point.

Come here at sunrise!!!! With a light breeze and beautiful waves, you feel like you are miles from civilization. The little park is well-tended. There are picnic tables, lots of grass, and seats to watch the lake and the harbor. The history of these places...More

Visited in July. $3 tour to the top of the lighthouse. 77 steps to the top! Mind over matter. It's ok if you don't look down through the metal grates of the spiral staircase.

Been here before over the years and I come back every time I am in the area. Good parking. Restrooms. (Porta potty). And you can walk up the lighthouse.

I visit this wonderful place a half dozen times a year and I am never disappointed! It’s perfect for early morning mediation as well as picnics and people watching! Today the water was absolutely gorgeous! They were giving $3 tours to the top. It’s definitely...More

Quaint, peaceful, clean little park, nice little break away - and 77 steps up to the top. They charge $6 for adult, and pace out a set number of people to go at a time. Beautiful stairwell and cute little windows along the way. Beautiful...More
