The Point Clark Lighthouse Opens Thursday for the Season!

Open June 28th to Labour Day

There is no better view of the Lake Huron shoreline than from atop the Lighthouse! The Point Clark Lighthouse was built in the 1850s and is a National Historic Site. It was one of the first ‘imperial towers’ to flash its light. The Lighthouse will open for the season on Thursday June 28th, just in time for the Point Clark Canada Day Fireworks Spectacular taking place on June 30th! The Lighthouse Museum, Gift Shop and Information Centre will be open daily from 10:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. with the last tour departing at 5:00p.m. We offer special Sunset Tours by reservation, which must be booked at least 24 hours in advance.

Admission rates are as follows:

Adults: $7.50

Children (12 and under): $5.00

Sunset: $10.00 per person

Group Tours (minimum 10 people): $5.00 per person

This year our Children’s Program is FREE thanks to sponsorship from Bruce Power! This is a drop-in program on Fridays from 2:00p.m. – 4:00p.m and includes crafts, activities and a snack. The Program is geared to kids age 5-10 and parents are invited to stay with the group or leave a contact number in case of emergency. Each week will focus on different ways that we can protect the environment. Themes include:

  1. Preventing Pollution
  2. Energy Conservation
  3. Reducing Water Consumption
  4. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  5. Maintaining a Healthy Lakeshore
