No inside access to this light house but you can tour the keepers house which was cool. This is also the site of the Great Lake Shipwreck museum and a beautiful beach.

Definitely worth the short drive from Paradise. Beautiful shoreline, spectacular beach. We intended to visit museum there but ran out of time

This is a beautiful place to visit. There is a lot of history about the ships of the Great Lakes. The displays are well done and the place is well kept. It's worth the drive.
