Eagle Bluff Lighthouse open to visitors this Monday

The latest phase in Peninsula State Park’s return to normal takes effect Monday, and that includes the opening of the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse to visitors. The State of Wisconsin owns the property, so DNR permission was required before the museum, and the tower could welcome the public again, something that usually happens in May. Site Manager Linda Faust says the tours will be self-guided for the near future, and there will be strict capacity limits.


There will be three staff on hand to help sanitize the facility while tours are ongoing. Faust says the lighthouse averages around 14,000 visitors a year under normal circumstances. Guests are welcome seven days a week from 10 AM until 3:30 PM. Faust says the lighthouse was able to participate in the Maritime Museum’s spring event to a degree. Staff held an outdoor presentation on the building’s history.
