Old Presque Isle Lighthouse (1840) in Winter

Plan Your Visit 

Presque Isle's historic lighthouses are a must-see stop for visitors to northeast lower Michigan. Situated on Lake Huron on a peninsula (pres'que isle is French for "almost an island"), the 1840 Lighthouse is among the oldest and the 1870 Lighthouse is the tallest in Michigan that the public can climb. During the open season (late May to mid-October), you can climb both towers, tour the restored 1905 Keeper's House, shop in the well stocked gift shop, have a picnic, and enjoy a variety of public programs. Enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets over Lake Huron and North Bay. A series of walking trails are available year-round in the New Lighthouse Park.

Enjoy your visit!
