Little Sable Point Lighthouse

SEASON DAYS HOURS
MAY 23 - SEPTEMBER 30 MONDAY - SUNDAY 10 AM - 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 forest and dunes that surrounds you.  All towers may be climbed for the small price of $1 for children and $3 for adults.  Educational tours are available by appointment, and are warmly received by staff and volunteers who love to share their Michigan maritime knowledge.
