“Beautiful park - great views - COLD water ha”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

What a gorgeous park - you can see the lighthouse and almost anywhere you look its really beautiful. The water in Lake Superior is ICE COLD no matter how warm it is outside so don't plan on swimming unless you like the polar bear plunge thing.

“Hidden Gemstone”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This state park is brilliant. This is hidden gemstone just beside highway. Idea for camping and photography. Lake Superior appears so wild here. Love it.

“Bike riding and north shore visit”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

The view is beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. Enjoyed it, we rode bike on the
Biking trail. Very hilly from gooseberry falls campground to split rock but worth it!

“Great Views!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We visited Split Rock Lighthouse State Park in July and walked the trail down the stairs by the old rail system. It was quite a few stairs, and not for those physically challenged. The view was worth it though! Be prepared for a good aerobic workout!

“Don't miss this beautiful park”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This is my favorite lighthouse. Great place for everyone to visit. My hubby has health problems was able to go to the lighthouse level for pictures & sights. I got to go down the 100 or so steps to take pictures of the lighthouse from a distance. Visit the website to ensure you don't miss a thing. The fall colors were just beginning last weekend 10/03 so they should be simply gorgeous now. We so enjoyed visiting with the young lady portraying the lighthouse keeper's wife--she was simply the best guide ever!!! Climb the stairs up the lighthouse & have someone take pictures of your group coming down. The fresh baked cookies were perfect at the lighthouse keeper's house, also. The sky was so clear & blue making our pictures the best we've ever had. Expect to need something from this beautiful gift shop--we found a 3M cap.
