Little Sable Point Lighthouse on Lake Michigan
More lighthouses dot Michigan’s shores than any other state in the U.S., and Little Sable Point Lighthouse stands tall and proud among them. The Great Lakes are well known for big drama in bad weather and boaters still count on lighthouses as a beacon to safety. Whether boating on Lake Michigan, swimming or combing the shores for fossils and stones, Little Sable Point Lighthouse is a beautiful and welcome sight. It sits right on the shore, south of Silver Lake Sand Dunes and is part of Silver Lake State Park and is easily accessible. It is open for tours daily from May 24 through September 30, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lighthouse Park requires a Michigan Recreation Passport for entry, or one must be purchased.
Directions: Follow US-31 to the Shelby Road Exit. Follow Shelby Road west to B-15. Follow B-15 to Silver Lake Road. Turn Left onto Silver Lake Road (next to Mac Wood's Dune Rides). Follow the winding, paved road to the Little Sable Point Light Station.
