The Old Mission Lighthouse Park is a great finish to the drive up the Old Mission Peninsula. The lighthouse is small but pleasing to the eye, and it’s situated near a small beach and some walking trails. The bathrooms were not in good shape, but...More

Easy access. The road to go there is really beautiful as well. Parking is small. The place makes you want to spend some time there and just relax.

Beautiful spot to hike and snowshoe. Cute little lighthouse and log cabin. The drive up here was great. We hit a few wineries as well.

This is a very scenic, quiet place. The lighthouse is very small, but surrounded by TONS of scenic opportunities. There is a beach right in front, so you can catch some quiet rays there. I believe I saw some walking trails, as well???

Parking is a little tight sometimes, and the restroom is one of those smell composting toilets. But this is a lovely little beach where you can actually hang out and stroll, or picnic or lay on a towel and wade. Can't be too crowded because...More
