Cana Island Lighthouse

8800 East Cana Island Road
Baileys Harbor, WI 54202

About :

Travel back in time and explore one of Door County's most popular lighthouses that's been standing watch on the shore of Lake Michigan for more than 140 years.

Investigate the entire 8.7-acre island that includes the 89-foot-tall light tower, the original home of the lighthouse keeper and his family, and the oil house where fuel for the light was stored.

The highlight of any Cana Island visit is climbing the 97 steps of the tower's spiral staircase to reach the gallery deck. The outside deck delivers a sweeping view of Lake Michigan and the Door County peninsula.

While the ascent is fun for visitors, imagine the lighthouse keeper's job as he trudged up and down the steps each night, carrying heated lard to keep the light burning!
