Beautiful lighthouse, but little-to-no view from it, all blocked by trees. Stopped for a few photos, but that was it. Wish there was a little more. Still fun to stop and see though.

Small lighthouse with a plaque. It's pretty basic. Parking is free, it's easy to find. No entry, close to 'downtown' Manitowaning. Cute town to get out of the car and stretch your legs in, and this lighthouse is part of it.

The lighthouse is along the road, looks like many in the area. I suppose what makes it special is that it is still a functioning lighthouse. We took a photo and moved on.

You really just need a minute or two in order to view this lighthouse. We dropped in because I enjoy seeing lighthouses and are staying at My Friends Inn. Rustic, but in good shape. Nice spot to pull Over on side of the street. View...More

The lighthouse is at the end of Arthur street so the map is slightly off. The town is beautiful and there's some great view points of the bay but there's lots of mature trees in the way of seeing anything from the actual lighthouse.

Manitoulin does not lack in lighthouses, and this is one of many. However, it is easy to get to from the main road toward Little Current in a few minutes, and has a few other nice local landmarks within a short walking distance.
