    Awesome experience! Cool little museum and attractions on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
    You can even climb to the top of the lighthouse tower to see a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan, Beaver Island, the Manitou Islands, South Island, North Island, and Little Traverse Bay. Well worth the trip and price of admission to the park.

The Keeper program allowed for the perfect balance of work and play. It is also an easy drive to Traverse. We will be back. The other Keepers were great. Super friendly and easy to get to know. Although I do think...Read More

Although I do think the place might be haunted...We heard something at night:) Tip- Ask the locals for the best beaches.
