The lighthouse and hiking paths were amazingly beautiful. I highly recommend stopping and enjoying both! I was shocked that the living history staff were so cold and shared very little information about the lighthouse even when prompted with questions. They could use more coaching on how to interact with visitors while in character.
You do have to pay to enter the lighthouse but it is pretty interesting. It has great views of the North Shore and some nice walking paths. If you are driving up to the lighthouse from Duluth then you can stop at the Split Rock River right before the lighthouse and there is a nice loop trail to hike.

loved the tour and the costumed docents, I would recommended hiking around the grounds to get a better feel of the property, especially the caves by the shore.
Although it does cost money to attend the guided tour was very informative and the people working there were very friendly and eager to answer any questions. The history behind the location and Lake Superior is fascinating. Good hiking and stunning views are included.
This was such a great place! My first camping trip ever and I'm not accustom to walking and carrying such a load but it's so worth it! Got to get the right spot. It's amazing. During the night the sprays from the water were so high it was falling on our tent! Kept thinking it had finally started to rain.... 更多
