Lighthouse County Park is located 6 miles north of Port Hope and features 110 campsites on 120 acres of land. It has modern and tent sites as well as the historic Pointe Aux Barques Lighthouse, which is a Great Lakes navigational point.
Construction on the lighthouse began in 1847. The structure has lasted, in use, for nearly 160 years. Since 2002, the Pointe aux Barques Lighthouse Society (PaBLS), has worked to restore and preserve the light station and museums.
The beaches have rocky, stony shores so are not ideal for swimming. Lighthouse park is great for many other activities including camping, cabin rentals, boating, special events, day use, and hiking.
For your convenience, the park has made every effort to provide Wifi services. Unfortunately, the trees and other obstructions cause the Wifi signal to be disrupted and therefore not reliable. You may want to consider direct internet service to your camping unit from an internet provider.
