A nice lighthouse and grounds. Great views from the beach. Only downside is the Michigan state park fee.

Great State Park. Many trails and nice beach with a small eating area. A couple of fishing ponds as well. The lighthouse is pretty cool too.

Very beautiful place. If you are in East Tawas check it out. I put solo but took my 82 year old mother and she really enjoyed this. There was nice sidewalk for walking which was a huge plus.

Pleasant attraction near the beach and grille. We biked around the short, paved path. There’s a small souvenir shop next to it as well.

Thank goodness many lighthouses have been saved and restored. This is a well preserved lighthouse, and it is well worth the fee that Michigan charges for these historical treasures.

It isn't a large light house, but for those who enjoy light houses, this is one to stop in and see. True to the old style of light houses, the architecture is much more interesting than modern day structures.
