We made the mistake of going to Meldrum Bay a very long trip for nothing. the only thing there was the overpriced inn, with the very surly owner. Not impressed.

We really enjoyed our visit here. we arrived just prior to sunset. the drive in is a little tricky, just watch for the signs and keep going. our gps was NOT impressed with our actual drive in, kept insisting we should try and go through a locked gate to a quarry/gravel pit lol there are benches placed in various spots...

I visited the lighthouse about 8 years ago. It was a vibrant business. Great campsites and the restaurant was in full swing. This visit made me very sad as it was very run down. The restaurant was gone and the lighthouse looked abandoned. The campsites were very over grown. It really needs alot of love On a good note, the... More

The lighthouse and building need much work - but you're really here for the shoreline, nature and sunsets.

The lighthouse was not open, under renovations, but the shoreline is amazing! Kids had a great time walking on the rocks and following the shoreline. Very nice place, well worth the long drive in!

Beautiful place to watch the sunset over the lake (with Cockburn island nearby). Campsites available too, which looked interesting, but didn't have time to investigate.

Getting to the Mississagi Lighthouse and Campground is worth the challenge, my tip... do some research on the route you're going to travel because you will lose cellular coverage so a proper GPS unit will be better. Once there the historic facilities are really nice and it's a shame that the lighthouse was closed... but understand that it's your donations... More

It has been 34 years since our first visit here and we keep on coming back again and again. Any description I might try to write here would be grossly inadequate as anyone who has come here will tell you. The Campground is clean, but basic. The wash house has seen better days but is still in operation. I have... More

Great site for history buffs. Houses are open as museums and look virtually left unchanged from early 1900s. Shoreline is stunning. Wreck for scuba diving off the shore too. Campsites available and sometimes the restaurant is open.

interesting old lighthouse, well worth a look. Long dusty drive to the site. Watch out for the deer!
