If you have a problem walking in snow or on ice I would recommend not going in winter. I couldn't get to the vantage point to photograph the lighthouse because of the snow and ice. My problem...don't let it be yours, go during warmer weather.
The Split Rock Lighthouse is a phenomenal and amazing engineering and historical wonder! The location is very picturesque and the historical tours and videos are even more amazing! The entire sight includes the area below the lighthouse right on the lake. Taking time to walk through every foot of the property makes your visit much more memoriable!
The tour guide was fantastic!!! Especially with the smaller kids!! The views were amazing and the kids had a lot of fun. The tour was incredibly informative and went at a good pace.

Some of the most stunning vistas on the North Shore can be had at the Split Rock grounds. Take the path down to the shore, and splash around on the rocks if you get a chance! Unless you're a history buff or lighthouse enthusiast, the tour probably won't be that interesting.
