“Best Lighthouse I Have Ever Seen!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

This lighthouse is just AWESOME! I am a lighthouse lover (my bathroom is decorated with different lighthouse things lol) and Split Rock Lighhouse has to be my favorite! It is very cool because they wil let you go up inside of the lighthouse. The staff was very friendy and full of information about the lighthouse. After going up inside the lighthouse there was a trail just down the road that we took that gave the picture (that you see everywhere) of Split Rock. Defiently recommend you visiting this ligthouse. You won't regret it!

“Awesome lighthouse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We arrived after 4:00 pm on a Thursday so the visitors center was closed but we were still able to walk up to the lighthouse. Breathtaking views and interesting history. Wish we had got there earlier..and that it was above zero....but was worth it. Want to visit again!

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Split Rock lighthouse is well maintained, and a great place to stop and enjoy the views of Lake Superior. Park staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived just before closing time, but were never hurried. The history of the lighthouse is well documented in the visitor center. What an incredible amount of determination it must have taken to build this lighthouse high above the water, before there were any roads to the area. Excellent stop along an unbelievably beautiful scenic drive.

Can't say enough positive about this historical site. Great setting with hiking trails nearby. The inside museum is very nicely done with an awesome view of the lighthouse from inside.
