Very nice display of this lighthouse's history in the lighthouse. Can go up to second floor but can only climb lighthouse on certain days of year.

We were spending the day in search of Michigan lighthouses. This is a real gem. It is not often that you find a lighthouse that is open. The lighthouse was not open for climbing to the top, but the information in the museum was very interesting and the property was very nice including the views.

Beautiful views, nice history. People were very friendly and helpful. Walking near the water was nice and it was a nice little stop while traveling the thumb.

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!
