“Worth a look”

Pointe aux Barques Lighthouse
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Port Hope
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is a nice lighthouse sitting right on Lake Huron. It is free to visit although you can only go to the top on Saturday and Sunday. There are some cool artifacts inside, including a door signed by one of the ship captains in the 1800's. Seeing as how there is not much to see or do at all in this area other than Lake Huron, put this on your list of stops.

Stopped at the lighthouse and museum during our recent tour of Michigan's thumb area. The volunteers were friendly, informative and very personable. The museum tour is free and full of maritime history and memorabilia. The beautiful view of Lake Huron made this stop well worth our time!

Awesome view of Lake Huron and it is free to look around and inside the lighthouse. The whole building is open except for the light tower which opens only a few times each year. I retesting stories and a ton of history.

There is a park, gift shop and campground there with a fantastic view.
It is away from all the hustle and bustle of life. We love Grindstone City and Pt Austin that are near by too. Great place to relax from your cares.
