“Camping ”

Pointe aux Barques Lighthouse
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Port Hope
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 August 2017 via mobile

Stayed at the campground attached to the park. Beautiful view of Lake Huron but no access for swimming (big cliffs down to the water). Stayed at a full hook up site. Most of the full hook up sites facing the water are seasonal spots, which is unfortunate. Even being behind one other camper facing the water it was still a spectacular view. We did not use the shower or bathroom facilities very much, yet when we did, they were very clean and neat. The very beautiful view of Lake Huron makes this campground very worthwhile. The little lighthouse you can tour is very neat to see. There are some geo caches nearby in the park. We drove to Port Austin for a day trip for kayaking (about a 20 minute drive).

Beautiful park & lighthouse. Look when lighthouse is open. Great educational tour of the working lighthouse. 86 steps to the top . Beautiful view. Enjoyed the lighthouse festival . Had music, food, vendors & activites for kids.
Small gift shop. Nice park for a picnic & relaxing looking at coast of Lake Huron. Beautiful rock formations .

On the Lake Huron Lighthouse Trail and well worth the stop. Plenty of parking, a small museum, and nice grounds....you can really walk around and see the harbor and lake. The history is well documented....plenty of tragedy happened here due to violent storms. Very well curated. Recommend a visit.

My wife and I visited here on 7/26/17. Nice gift shop with friendly service. Museum is excellent with loads of history and how these light keepers had to live. Grounds are well kept with park nearby.

This lighthouse is located just outside Port Austin Michigan. It is still an active lighthouse. There is a very nice museum with the history of the lighthouse. Unfortunately the time we visited you could not climb to the tower. They only allow climbs to the tower on holiday weekends in the summer so plan your visits then. Very nice and worth a look. The view was great too.
