White River Lighthouse Tour

Built in 1875 by Captain William Robinson. The White River Light Station serves as a physical reminder of the rich nautical history of Lake Michigan. Climb the spiral staircase to the top of the tower. Browse the many 19th and 20th century photographs. Examine the nautical artifacts. Look out across Lake Michigan as the light house keeper did over a century ago.

Then pick you spot along the pier, in the garden or on the beach and enjoy the gourmet picnic basket lunch created for your by chef’s Lisa and Larry.

With each Lighthouse package we sell, we make a donation to the Lighthouse Keepers Association, which governs The White River Lighthouse. We strongly support the restoration and preservation efforts of this wonderful landmark.
