Well, maybe not but it's OK to tell the kids that. To the north you can see the Bruce Generating Station and to the south, the Goderich skyline, such as it is. There is a tight circular staircase with places to bump your head. Your...More

Take the guided tour (it’s not a lot!) but when you go into the lighthouse, watch your head. It’s low and I whacked mine really good. They need a sign or padding, or both! The steps are really steep, and the last few are a...More

We had a group (bus) visiting the site before it was technically open for the season. A delightful young man was assigned to assist us and he opened the small museum and led the courageous ones to the top of the lighthouse. Some of the...More

The Point Clark lighthouse reopened after an extensive repair and the tour is well worth doing. It is a beautiful and historically significant building. Pay your fee in the small museum area beside the lighthouse. Groups seem to be small. You're led up more than...More

The drive to the lighthouse was interesting and the small waterfront park beside it (town park, I believe) was enjoyable. The lighthouse itself was OK but nothing special, especially if you compare it to Nova Scotia's lighthouses. It was closed but would not have paid...More

A nice photo op if you are nearby, but not worth going out of your way or paying to enter. At $7.50 per adult, it is definitely overpriced for a tiny, lackluster "museum" and a nice view. Save your money and spend some time on...More

Hi Yes the light does stay on. The Lighthouse is still used for navigational purposes as it warns sailors of the rock shoal.
