Explore Cana Island Lighthouse

Cana Island Lighthouse - Search Nearby - Added by Cameron Cech

If you are already in Door County, this is a worthy spot to visit, especially if you can do so for sunrise or sunset while the light is on. The beach is entirely made of shells and depending on the tide, you can walk out rather far.

You will arrive at a parking lot that is on the mainland. Once parked, you will need to walk across the land bridge to Cana Island where you will come to a small building to pay an admission fee. Hours and Fees are below.

Once on the island, you can walk around and explore the light keeper's house, the lighthouse itself, and the shoreline.

Worth checking out

One of the many lighthouses around Door County, but definitely worth a trip. There were also signs suggesting camping available in the summer, but I would suggest checking with the lighthouse staff to see if that is the case.
