Overview

What is there not to like about driving over seven miles on dirt through a tight and twisty emerald green forest only to arrive at a historic lighthouse on the shores of Lake Superior? Crisp Point Lighthouse, named after Christopher Crisp, was constructed in 1903 and 1904 and became operational on May 5, 1904. The 15-acre lighthouse site is prime lakefront and was purchased for only $30! Today is an opportunity to see our maritime history and take in the sights through pristine forests and the coastline.
