Featured Lighthouse #8- Big Sable Point Lighthouse

Nestled among jack pines down a two mile walk along a breathtaking trail stands Big Sable’s noble black and white tower. This historic beacon, (1867) is located within Ludington State Park and is operated by SPLKA, a non-profit which proudly manages historic lighthouses along Lake Michigan’s shoreline, offering a Volunteer Keepers program which allows its members the opportunity to live and work for free within the lighthouses, May-October. Visitors are welcome to tour the original Keeper’s Quarters and Gift Shop, stroll along the sand dunes or climb the 112 foot tower. In 2012, SPLKA begins the first phase on the Seawall Reconstruction Project. Along with restoration efforts, special entertainment and transportation are provided every summer month- June 5, July 3 and August 7 from 7-8 p.m
