The water in Port Huron is spectacularly clear and clean, but it is important to note that Lighthouse Beach is not recommended for swimming. While there is a designated swim area, the water tends to be incredibly deep and strong currents make it hard for swimmers to stay afloat. Plus, there is no lifeguard on duty. So while swimming is not prohibited, it is highly discouraged.
However, there are plenty of other activities to enjoy, including tanning in the sun, climbing the stone lighthouse, boating, picnicking, fishing, and seeing the scenic views, among others. Even better, your furry friend can accompany you! Just make sure your pup does not go inside any buildings or facilities.
Parking is generally free for residents and visitors, except from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Further fees are discussed below.
The Lighthouse is open to visitors on Saturday, Sunday & Holidays from 10 am – 7 pm. You can walk the lighthouse and see the beautiful views from the top. Day passes are required:
