This lighthouse is one of the easier ones to access in Michigan. It's convenient to get to with ample parking and not a long walk. Great beach area to go on also.

We visited the lighthouse one evening while in the area for a girls wine weekend. The location was gorgeous and we were able to get some great pictures. Many people were coming to the lighthouse in hopes of watching the sunset when we were there but the sunset could not be viewed well from here. A short drive back south offered amazing sunset views.

In winter. Had the place to myself, except for a few folks walking there dogs. It’s gorgeous and so unique even in winter..and the views are lovely and tranquil. Try not to be jealous of my snow boots in the sand

I don't know which was better; the cool lighthouse or the gorgeous ride up the peninsula to get to it. My art photographer friend had a ball shooting the bay views, the snow covered vineyards and orchards and, yes, the lighthouse.

My husband I drove up from Indiana to see the lighthouses near Traverse City since we didn't have time on a similar trip last winter. The area had received several inches of snow the previous night (in addition to all the snow they already had) but Michigan seems much better at snow removal than Indiana. The drive out to the lighthouse was easy despite the recent snow. It was beautiful in the park, and we could walk out near the lighthouse, but we couldn't explore much due to the depth of the snow. This would be a great place to explore in the summer.
