Activities & Attractions


Explore Door County's most iconic lighthouse, which in 2019 celebrated 150 years of standing watch on the shore of Lake Michigan. Ride a hay-wagon over the causeway to explore the island, including the 89-foot-tall light tower, oil storage house and lighthouse keeper's home. The highlight of any Cana Island visit is climbing the 97 steps of the tower's spiral staircase to reach the gallery deck, which delivers a sweeping panoramic view of Lake Michigan and the Door County peninsula. Open 10am-5pm, May-October.


10am-5pm daily. Interpretive center, keeper’s quarters and outbuildings will be open, however no tower climbs.
