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

we were disappointed that the buildings and lighthouse were closed when we went to visit this park free for Canada 150 but we did enjoy the grounds and the view. There are informative plaques explaining the lighthouse and the extensive repairs it had to undergo....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

We stopped by as we were at a nearby beach, beautiful lighthouse and great for pictures. Cute ice cream shop nearby (5 min walk), otherwise there's not much to do other than take in the scene and relax! We did not opt to pay for...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

Nice historic lighthouse to visit along the Lake Huron shore. Small fee to climb up but nice but of the shoreline.

The lighthouse in Point Clark is very nice and recently renovated. We took a day trip to Point Clark and walked along the water and sat and enjoyed watching the rush of Lake Huron hitting against the rocks. There are benches to sit and relax...More
