“originally built in 1895”
This conical brick light tower was originally built in 1895 at a cost of $18,500, it stands at 78'9". It produces a lens focal plane 80' above the mean low water level of Lake Michigan. The tower is surmounted by a 10-sided cast iron lantern. The lantern originally held a third order Fresnal lens, but is now fitted with a modern airport beacon lens. Tower tours are available and visitors are welcome to enjoy the surrounding grounds, which includes a picnic area, walking paths, and public boat launch.
This was a lot of fun for my family of 7! It’s 8 miles off 2 with half of the travel on a dirt road. Admission to go up in the lighthouse is only $5 for adults and $2 for kids. You must wear regular shoes (no flip flops) to go up and must be over 36” tall. The view is absolutely amazing!! There’s a private beach at the point that’s perfect for swimming. Be prepared to know your way out of here because once you leave, there’s zero service! This place is said to be haunted, so I sat my kids down and told them the story which made their curious minds appreciate it even more. Have fun! It is the only lighthouse still in use on Lake Michigan’s northern shore
