This is such a beautiful, peaceful place to visit. Plenty of benches and tables to rest. I got to meet a gentleman that was painting the sign. Really nice guy. Keep up the good work.

This lighthouse is set beautifully right at the edge of the water. You can go up in the lighthouse as well as visit the light keeper's house. Cedar Point amusement park can be seen across the lake. The views from this area are great.
