Tawas Point Lighthouse


The working lighthouse at Tawas Point, a 67-foot white tower, was rebuilt in 1876 after shoreline build-up placed the original tower a mile inland. Access to the lighthouse is limited but the surrounding Tawas Point State Park provides miles of sandy beach, picnicking and camping areas, and nature trails. Take Tawas Beach Road from Route 23. A Michigan State Parks motor vehicle permit is required for entry into the park.
