Built in 1896, Big Bay Point Lighthouse has been an operational tower safely guiding mariners along the waters of Lake Superior for more than a century.
Nestled in the far reaches of Copper Harbor, this historic lighthouse is no longer operational, though its 1933 steel skeleton tower still aids those who are navigating the rough waters of Lake Superior. There’s currently no public access to this lighthouse.
Crisp Point Lighthouse is one of the most remote lighthouses in the Upper Peninsula, though most visitors find that it’s well worth the effort to get to this desolate location.
Located in the heart of the treacherous DeTour Reef, the DeTour Reef Light was built in 1931 to help mariners traverse the waters of the rocky reef. Preservation efforts have been underway since 1998. Visitors can tour the reef light and learn more about its history and the role that it plays today.
