I'm a big lighthouse fan, and this was not disappointing, Beautiful lighthouse, sits at the end of a pier. Not really a whole lot else to see near it, but beautiful against the lake just the same.

We walked out along the boardwalk a short distance from the car park. One of many lakeside lighthouses. Pleasant garden nearby with water fountain to amuse the children. Saw waterfowl swimming close by.

Be sure to walk the full length of the boardwalk to the lighthouse. The view is wonderful. We walked it during sunset and got some beautiful pictures. This is not a lighthouse you can go inside of.

We walked out the boardwalk to the lighthouse after dinner across the street. It was very scenic with the setting sun.

Love walking out to the light house. Well kept area rich with local history. Great place for photos. If your kids play Pokémon Go, the lighthouse is a gym. Some rare Pokémon along the way.

If you are looking for an after dinner walk with amazing photos this is the place to go!! As the sun is setting it is breathtaking and conveniently located right behind Mackinac Grille.

We were waiting on the July 4th fireworks to start so we stopped in. It is a nice walk along the water and my son enjoyed it.

I love lighthouses and this one was no exception. There's a short walk out to the lighthouse but you can see it pretty well from the parking lot too. The harbor is a really nice area to walk around and just watch the water and...More
