We really wanted to visit this lighthouse but did not realize how limited the hours were and that a boat trip was required. It was my fault for not keeping the lighthouse information better organized.

A stop on the Lake Huron Lighthouse Trail. A peaceful harbor, nice public park, and a boardwalk that extends into the harbor for a nice view. Well maintained. Plenty of parking. Free. About 25 minutes north of Port Sanilac. Just off Rte 25.

We went when the lighthouse wasn't open for tours. Followed directions to see from fishing pier and where tours leave. A lousy place to view as that marina plus the nearby power plant give a bad impression. We went to Harbor Beach Park and had...More

Be sure to book your lighthouse tour early. We tried the day before our visit and the online site said it was booked. We called a couple of phone numbers and found there had been a cancellation. The tour starts with a 10 minute boat...More
