Across the bay from Copper Harbor is still another lighthouse – the Copper Harbor Lighthouse. You can catch a ferry in town and take a boat trip across the bay, then walk around the area and see the exhibits.
We did not do this this time because we’ve done it before and it does cost money – $17.00 for adults/$12.00 for children. Which is reasonable, but time is also a factor, so we did not put it on our todo list.
However, there is a park (another state park) across from the Fort which gives you views of the lighthouse. Again, that whole do-you-live-in-Michigan thing is at work so you have to pay for a state park pass to park in the parking lot to see the lighthouse. So during our first ride to Copper Harbor, we couldn’t park in the park parking lot.
But now we had a day pass (from the Fort) and so we made use of it and parked and took some picture.
