Big Sable Point Lighthouse reviews
This is a living history museum. Displays and a small giftshop, then a spiral staircase to the top pf the light! more »
My wife and I love lighthouses and I wanted to see this one. The only difficulty is that there is a very long walk over 1.5 miles to get out to the lighthouse and it is not shaded in many spots. Be.... more »
Gorgeous lighthouse with an amazing view! The views of the coast and the dunes are equally beautiful in their own ways. It's a little bit of a walk to get to the lighthouse, but the path is well groomed and it is definitely worth the hike. If you want to go up in the lighthouse, make sure you arrive before it closes. Last time we arrived literally 2 minutes after 5pm and the keepers were slightly grumpy in promptly turning us away. Keepers vary from time to time though.
Pros: Beautiful view at the lighthouse. Quiet trail with great view of some of the different ecosystems of the dunes. Cons: It was almost 2 miles to walk to lighthouse Then 2 miles back. No bikes allowed. Overall I'm glad we went once and if we came more prepared for the walk to/from the lighthouse I would like to think I would do it again. Bring sunblock and waters! And comfy shoes
