Lovely lighthouse on a rocky shoal a short walk from the parking lot. Great place to sit and watch the boats come and go or watch the fishermen trying their luck. Just like being on Maine.

Great place to take pictures. Wish I was able to swim there but the winds were much too high to do it that day. Lighthouse was beautiful.

Cool to see in harbor but noticed you can't climb any this year in the Bruce area. The bootleggers pub good on your way in opens at 4

Was a very pretty spot to check out the lighthouse - there is not much else to say it's a lighthouse on a pretty spot

No. The parking at the lighthouse is a municipal toll. The lighthouse is not on park property. There is limited parking at the sight. There is roadside parking (pay only) but most is in the roadside brush with little... More
