Locals and people from afar will love this spot. Beautiful place to explore... it's a rocky and bumpy walk out to the lighthouse but worth the walk. I suggest you wear hiking shoes, and bring your camera...because you just can't leave without snapping a few...More

Our son wanted to travel to Wisc, when we were in Duluth. We researched a few places, with this being one. Very fun to find this undeveloped lighthouse. Reading the history on it before was helpful.

I brought my teenage daughter and her friend to the point, hot day and a dip in the lake sounded good. Clean beach. Not as busy as Park Point in Duluth, MN. No permanent bathroom there, but they did have an outhouse if needed. The...More

This was very cool to see, but we wish we could of gotten closer to the lighthouse. You can see that there used to be a pier that went out to it but has been removed.

This is a great location with beach, prairie and woods. There are Native American Burial Grounds, too. The lighthouse involves crossing a lot of rocks to get to it. It's a nice view, if you decide to do it. The point overall is lovely and...More

Long rough road to get there and it's locked so you can't go inside but it's still kinda cool to see. Wish they could find the money to restore but can't have everything.

This lighthouse was remote and hard to get to. But it was worth the drive. Cool to see with a very beautiful setting with great views of Duluth and Superior. No path to the lighthouse.

Well worth the walk out to the lighthouse but it was a challenge to climb over all the big rocks to get to it. There is no walk way or board walk just giant rocks but it was a great time.

The description of walking path is a bit deceiving. Be prepared to walk over a long span of rocks. It was very cool once we made it there, but for a nervous mom of an overactive 8-year-old boy I was glad to get back to...More

There's waterfowl hunting in nearby Allouze Bay during the season but not up by the lighthouse and beach area to my knowledge.

I'm just curious about the fenced-in group of buildings at the westernmost end of Wisconsin Point Rd. What are or were they used for? There's a couple houses and some outbuildings, next to the radio tower. Anyone know?
