  • The trip across the causeway was not as terrifying as I thought it would be, so don't worry about that, the crossing is fun. No flushing toilets on the island, so know that! There was a bit of a wait ...  more »

  • A unique experience in the Great Lakes, and the view at the top of the lighthouse was beautiful! The volunteers worked so hard to make our visit possible-a tractor ride across to the island (the causeway is significantly under water in August), ticketing, the best gift shop we found in Door County, and history briefing of the lighthouse by Jon. Thanks for all of your hard work. Go see and support Cana Island Lighthouse.
  • Worth the wait. We tried three times before we could see the lighthouse. First time, we were just a bit late. Second and third times, the gravel causeway had been washed out. So plan ahead! It was a slow trek to the top of the lighthouse. I'm not afraid of heights, but my wife is. She was able to make it up to the top, but walking around the lighthouse gallery (outside) made both of us a little weak in the knees. The view was spectacular and we'll worth it.
