Little Sable Lighthouse Tours
Climb the lights!
May 23 – September 10
Tuesday – Sunday
Lighthouse and gift shop are open 10 am to 5 pm
Just south of Ludington is a magical world of seventy-foot sand dunes and evergreen forests. Here, burrowed amidst the Silver Lake State Park sand dunes, stands the spectacular Little Sable Point Lighthouse. Easily the busiest of these three lights, the 1874 tower stands alone at the base of Lake Michigan, over a hundred feet tall and still harboring its original 3rd order Fresnel lens. In 2010, thanks to a Federal Coastal Zone Management grant, the Pathways to Illumination project was completed. This well-paved pathway leads through what once was a steep dune that inhibited many visitors from making it to the light. Here you’ll find more friendly SPLKA Volunteer Keepers welcoming you to climb the tower and take in the extraordinary views of the forest and dunes that surround you.
The tower may be climbed for the small price of $5.00 for students 17 and under and $8.00 for adults.
Educational tours are available by appointment and are warmly received by staff and volunteers who love to share their Michigan maritime knowledge.
