We didn't do the tour to walk up the tallest Michigan lighthouse, but we did have to see it in person. It's amazing!!

This is a must every time we visit this area. Its away from the busyness of the tourist attractions. The coastline seems to go on and on. Just a great place to go on a hot sunny day or as you take in the sunset.

We walked up the 130 steps to check out the view, very pretty. Very narrow steps leading up, wouldn't be ideal for the elderly or very small children to try to navigate. $2 per person. Beach was ok, not the cleanest.

There was a Michigan Parks entrance fee to the parking lot, plus a fee to enter the light house. It was worth it. We really enjoyed this light house, not too crowded. It was easy to get from the parking lot into the light house....More

A fun thing to do while visiting Silver Lake. It's worth the $5.00 to go up in the lighthouse. You can see Lake Michigan and there is a beach area you can enjoy where checking out the lighthouse.

Just a lighthouse here. There was a nice beach in front that seemed very family friendly. During certain times you can climb to the top of the lighthouse, we did not do this.

Climb 130 steps for an awesome view of Lake Michigan. Not for the weak of heart. Great fun for kids over 40 inches in height.

easy access, fun to climb the 130 steps and a tremendous view of the lakeshore from the top. Plus a nice surrounding beach area. One of our favorites.

Found this little spot just driving with my son. Didn't do the tour but enjoyed the views. Lake Michigans water is so clear. You can walk and find your own nice spot on the beach.
