North Breakwater Lighthouse


Just down the shore from Big Sable stands the Ludington North Breakwater Light, another charge of SPLKA’s and a partner with the City of Ludington. This 1924 light is also open for tours and tower climbs and boasts a vibrant green light from its tower. The Breakwater Light is at the end of a half-mile walk down the pier and is exquisite in its design. Volunteer Keepers are welcome at this light as well, and enjoy living accommodations just within Ludington State Park.

Ludington North Breakwater will open on May 28 and will be open from 10 am to 5 pm daily through September 6, Tuesday – Sunday. During the month of July, the lighthouse will be open 7 days a week.

The light will be open for evening tower climbs 7-9 p.m. once a month June through August the same night as Pure Ludington Beach Bonfires at Stearns Beach: June 27, July 25, Aug. 29 (fees, age restrictions).
