McGulpin Point Lighthouse & Historic Site reviews
Not much oversized vehicle parking though. There's a gravel parking lot across the street, which also isn't huge, but much more space for maneuvering. We didn't go in, but wandered outside reading..... more »
Not only a great lighthouse, but the trail to the beach is fun for all. Very educational. Very near Dark Sky Discovery Trail. It’s such fun finding all the Michigan lighthouses! more »
Stayed in the little apartment right next to the lighthouse. It was so cute, very clean, and very quiet at night. The lighthouse and gift shop are very nice and the view from the top is breathtaking! Trail down to the water if you want a quick hike or can just drive down and park basically right at the shoreline. Will definitely plan on staying there again!
Such a beautiful light house. The house keepers were friendly and shared the history of the original owner, wife and 9 children. The museum tour was $3. $1 donation for the stamp for the light house passport book. Across the street there was a picnic area with portable toilets and hand washing station. There was a dog potty area and trails nearby.
