Big Sable Point Lighthouse
Nestled among jack pines down a two mile walk along a breathtaking trail stands Big Sable’s noble black and white tower. This historic beacon, first-lit in 1867, is located within Ludington State Park and is operated by SPLKA, a non-profit which proudly manages four lighthouses along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. SPLKA offers a Volunteer Keepers program which allows its members the opportunity to live and work onsite at Big Sable and to work within their three other lighthouses, May-October. Visitors are welcome to tour the original Big Sable Keeper’s Quarters, now a fully-stocked Gift Shop featuring many local and artisan crafts, to stroll along the sand dunes or climb the 112 foot tower.
