Located on the eastern end of Lake Superior, about 37 miles north of Newberry, you'll find Crisp Point Lighthouse, just like Brooke Gubacz did recently. To get there you have to take a gravel road, but it's well traveled and will take you right to the lighthouse. Brooke and her son Taylor did some exploring there, but first they stopped to read the safety rules posted, then they headed up to the top and snapped a photo of the vista from up high. Before they left, Taylor had to climb on what looks like driftwood roots and pose for a photo so Mom could preserve the memory of their visit to this beautiful Lake Superior Lighthouse.

Oops, I meant the 4th photo down. :>)

I enjoy lighthouses a lot, and hope they will all be preserved.

I took the road once about 7 years ago with Mom. I assured her it was worth the bumpy trip, but when we got there and she walked to the lighthouse she cried, "Is this all?" I shouldn't have taken her there as six months before she had had her kidney and spleen removed; she was probably in pain going over the bumps but wouldn't have said anything. Me, I thought it was wonderful and wonder why I haven't been back.

94 and sticky, sticky here in Michigan's capital city, but we are not complaining because we don't have to shovel it and it doesn't cover the roads with nasty white stuff. Isn't this what we've been wishing for?

Oh yeah! Hot, humid and oppressive...I love it. Hopped on the Wing at 7:00 am this morning and it was 80. Been riding all day.

Isn't that a bit dangerous Alex.... posting while riding?? J

Our favorite lighthouse!

We found it a few years before the Crisp Point Light Historical Society was started by the Rosses. When we saw the announcement that they wanted to save the light, we became Charter Lifetime Members.

Always worth the drive out ~ and much nicer now than the old days when you had to park and walk the last mile to the light! We only wish we had been able to see the old keeper's house before it was torn down.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Monday, July 5, 2010 - 08:18 pm:

Come on Capt, I know better than that. I posted from my living room where I parked my bike. My Wing and me love the hot weather, but we both like to cool down in the air conditioning when we're done :)

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Monday, July 5, 2010 - 09:15 pm:

Another U.P. Lighthouse that's been preserved is the Round Island Lighthouse next to Mackinac Island. What's even more impressive about it is that it has a flashing light again. Are there any other preserved lighthouses with this honor?

By James Alain (Charlevoix) on Monday, July 5, 2010 - 09:33 pm:

The easiest and nicest way to Crisp Point is to follow Luce County 415 for about ten miles north of McMillan and M 28....then follow 407 north about six more miles....then follow Luce County Rd 412 roughly 20 miles to the northeast. 412 ends at Crisp Point. Most of this is one lane graded sand roads, well marked and signed by the Luce County Road Commission. This is definitely a doable and well worthwhile trip, in spite of the remoteness of the area.

By E. Neil Harri (Ilmayksi) on Monday, July 5, 2010 - 09:50 pm:

The easiest way is by air.

One of my favorite lighthouses. Love the drive to reach it.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 - 08:37 pm:

I just got back from vacation and saw this on here. We went to Oswalds Bear Ranch Last summer but didn't make it this time. We went canoeing on the Two Hearted and rented canoes from the Rainbow Lodge. Not the best weather when we were camping. I think it should have been called bailing.
