Description
Located within Ludington State Park, this lighthouse can be visited via a 1.5 mile walk along the Lake Michigan shoreline. It is nestled among white sand dunes and is a sight to behold.
Around the turn of the century, the original tower was covered with white steel plates-the wide black band was painted in 1989.
