We went on a very windy, but sunny day. Ice was still on the beach, but it was worth it. Gorgeous view of the lighthouse, nice parking, though you do have to pay in peak season. The waves were too high to safely walk out...More

I love light houses, but you can’t beat this one with all the change in seasons and sunsets! Amazing sunsets on Lake Michigan, waves spraying up in the wind, ice covered in the winter.

Great place for a drive to catch the views. Easy parking during the winter. Past few week have seen some incredible waves hitting the lighthouse.
