Nice stop in the park

We were biking through the park and this was a nice stop along the way. We didn't climb up the lighthouse but enjoyed the grounds as well as access to some restrooms.

Very easy to get to by car and, if you have mobility issues, the grounds are easily accessible and offer great views of this picturesque lighthouse. Staff offers tours periodically throughout the day.

Not an imposing lighthouse yet pretty and very easy to walk around. The kids will like it because it is more to their scale. Easy to do while traveling the park.

We went to this park very late in October, just after the peak of fall color, and still the park was a very busy place. I was a bit surprised to see so many people at a time when Door County is either closing for the season or gearing up for the winter skiers and snowmobilers. Still, this little part... More

The view at this light house are amazing. Even on a cloudy day, the view was breath-taking. And, being close to Halloween, the legend that this is a haunted lighthouse added to the fun.

We were quite lucky on that day. When we arrived at the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, the last tour would be 15 minutes from when we enter it. The last visit is at 3:30 P.M. At first our guide explained about Lake Michigan. This year there had been a lot of rain and the water rose 4 feet. This is why... More

We bought our tickets for the next tour...and then figured out that they don't limit tour group sizes. There ended up being way TOO many people in our group for the small quarters of the light house. Made the tour less than ideal and too long...but still interesting, and a beautiful location.

This is an easy stop along the perimeter road. We did not have time for the $7 tour that lasts about 35 minutes. Nice view across the bay.

We only walked the grounds, it was too nice a day to go inside. There is a separate admission fee from the park entry fee.

Tour was very detailed and interesting but twice as long as advertised. Also, it was a bit weird to pay to get into the park and the lighthouse. Very well preserved and cool that the family's actual belongings are there.
