Events

The Old and New Presque Isle Lighthouses and the 1905 Keeper’s House are closed for the winter. Please remember that, while the buildings are closed, the New Lighthouse Park is open year round. Weather permitting, you can still enjoy the trails and the opportunity to witness our stunning sunrises and sunsets over the waters of Lake Huron and North Bay. We do ask that you keep our park clean by taking all trash and debris with you when you leave. To plan your winter visit, see our directions.
