Visitors to the lighthouses are welcome anytime, however the towers are currently closed for public tours until certain safety precautions and restoration steps are completed. Special private group tours can be arranged at this time on a limited basis by contacting Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy. Our eventual goal is to have public tours to climb to the top of the lantern room.

While the towers are closed, you can take a virtual tour of the lighthouses as well as look at a current view of them via these web cams.
