About Us

Mission Point Lighthouse - Open May-Oct. daily 10am-5pm, see website VISITOR INFO tab (click on it) for details. This lighthouse operates under the supervision of Peninsula Township, with the assistance of the non-profit group Mission Point Lighhouse Friends. This lighthouse is a Michigan visitor favorite as well as a favorite sight for locals. Daily, visitors hike the park trails, walk the beach and enjoy the views. If you are interested in having a beach wedding in front of the lighthouse, you are not alone. Many visitors have had their wedding ceremonies on the park property. Any ceremony must be brief and must not be a large event. No rows of chairs and no tents are allowed for camping or events. This is a public space. You are welcome to have your wedding on the beach, but it will have to be a spontaneous event. Of course, no cost involved as well. There are, however, park regulations that need to be followed by any users seeking to hold a gathering in the property. For example, you may bring a “couple” of chairs for your guests that need a seat, but large structures such as tents, benches, and rows of chairs are not allowed. All members of the wedding party MUST respect the other park visitors and have NO authority to break park rules or control other visitors behavior or experience. If in doubt, contact the Peninsula Township Planning and Zoning Department for more information at (231) 223-7314. The beach is public property and is used by residents, pets, and visitors of all ages. BE A KEEPER! See the unique keeper program information at the website.
