Big Sable Point Lighthouse

SEASON DAYS HOURS
MAY 1 - OCTOBER 25 MONDAY - SUNDAY 10 AM - 5 PM


Nestled among jack pines, just a quick two mile walk along a breathtaking trail, stands Big Sable’s noble black and white tower. At over one hundred feet tall, this historic beacon is a huge attraction for its owner, Ludington State Park.  The1867 lighthouse and grounds are operated by SPLKA, (Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association) a non-profit which proudly manages three historic lighthouses within a thirty mile stretch of Lake Michigan’s shoreline.  Since 1987, their mission has been the restoration, preservation, education and accessibility of their lighthouse charges.  SPLKA also operates a Volunteer Keepers program which allows its members the opportunity to live and work within the lighthouses completely free of charge during the seven month season, May-October.  Visitors are welcome to explore the grounds, tour the original Keeper’s Quarters which have been converted into a Gift Shop, stroll along the sand dunes or climb the tower.  This year, (grant match pending) SPLKA hopes to begin the first of several phases on the seawall reconstruction project.
