The best camping near Point Clark Lighthouse National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

Standing guard on the shores of Lake Huron, the Point Clark Lighthouse, built between 1855 and 1859, is part of an important system of “Imperial” lighthouses on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Visit the still-functioning 24 m/78 ft limestone tower to see the 12-sided lantern that shines a bright light on the historical significance of lighthouses to Great Lakes navigation. Nearby, the lightkeeper’s house museum illuminates the lives led on lonely shores.

When to go

The best time to visit Point Clark Lighthouse National Historic Site is during the warmer months when the site is open to the public. Summer offers the perfect backdrop for exploring the lighthouse and museum, with longer days and pleasant weather. Avoid winter, as the site is closed during this season, and the harsh weather can limit access to the area's attractions.

Know before you go

  • Check the operating hours before your visit, as the lighthouse is closed during the winter months.
  • Wear sturdy footwear for climbing the lighthouse steps and exploring the rocky shoreline.
  • Accessibility may be limited due to the historical nature of the site, so inquire ahead if you have specific needs.
  • Remember to bring a camera to capture the stunning views from the top of the lighthouse.
  • For more information on the site's history and activities, contact the visitor information centre.
