GLLKA took ownership of the 1880 lighthouse through the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act in June 2004, and will undertake the restoration of the station to its 1920 appearance over the next four years. As such, this represents a unique opportunity for lighthouse lovers to view the restoration in progress.
For an entry fee of $5 for adults and $3 for children, visitors will be able to tour the lighthouse and learn of its rich history from volunteer GLLKA keepers. The lighthouse also features a gift shop stocked with a large assortment of Great Lakes lighthouse-related books, apparel, and gifts, with all proceeds to be applied directly to the restoration of the lighthouse.
Arrangements can also be made to visit and enter the Cheboygan Crib Light with volunteers working at the lighthouse.
