Accessing Island & Fees
You can park at the end of the road and walk across a small isthmus of land. You can access the island, year-round. In winter there is no fee to reach the island, but also no tours. From May through October a fee applies to access the island and grounds, a separate fee to tour the tower in effect.
During the summertime sometimes high lake levels flood the causeway to the island, bring boots or waterproof shoes to walk across or otherwise they normally have wagon rides to travel back and forth.
During the winter, depending on the average snowfall, I find it easy to strap on snowshoes and travel in. The snow can be drifted off the lake fairly heavy in places.
I love to make the trip in winter because normally, there isn’t anyone around and you can take your time exploring the lighthouse up close.
Besides travel around the lighthouse, you can snowshoe along the Lake to see the lighthouse at different angles.
For the grand price of free, It is worth taking a trip in winter to see an 1800’s lighthouse and keepers quarters.
