It's quite a bit off of highway #9, mostly unpaved and no signage or directions anywhere. Run down with lots of biting bugs and poison ivy. Fenced in, not much to see or do. Can not really recommend it.

Enjoyed visiting this awesome and extremely isolated lighthouse. The grounds are well maintained and organized and the view was very good. Not too crowded early in the morning By The Way.

The drive up there was a bit of a trek, it isn't all paved. The lighthouse is nice, but fenced in. The shore is a great view, but rocky. Watch out for the flies though, they bite hard! I probably wouldn't go back there but...More

This lighthouse is a bit out of the way, but the way there provides gorgeous views of the Georgian bay. We stopped and took some pictures on the way. There really should be some overlooks on the way. The lighthouse itself is fenced off, which...More

One of the many lighthouses along the shores of Georgian Bay. The lighthouse is no longer active, although a light is kept burning. You'll have to follow quite a long road (non-sealed for the last part), to arrive at a parking lot near the lighthouse....More

Showing a little neglect but it is still standing in a fenced in area. This lighthouse needs to be adopted by some friends to keep it preserved. This is a lovely isolated area and it is a long drive on a narrow gravel road along...More

Our young son is a lighthouse aficionado, so we serach out lighthouses when we travel. The Cape Croker lighthouse is a long ways from the main highway (#6) on the Bruce Peninsula. The lighthouse itself is an interesting design, but is surrounded by chain link...More

Drove from Sauble Beach to check this local attraction out; It was a nice drive to get here but once we got here we quickly discovered that it is just another lighthouse here. Don't get me wrong here, they (lighthouses) certainly do job their for...More

Never one to give up, on our second visit to the gorgeous Bruce Peninsula, we were determined to locate the elusive Cape Croker lighthouse. Be warned - signage on The Bruce for some locations is sparse. Get a local (and detailed map) from a Visitor...More

We drove for miles and miles. Yes, the views are stunning and that made the drive lovely, but eventually we ran out of steam and turned around and spent another 30 mins. getting out of that area. Never say the lighthouse, though it looks pretty...More
