Discover this historic lighthouse near Lake Superior.

Split Rock Lighthouse State Park is situated along the northern Lake Superior shoreline, just off Highway 61 (AKA Voyageur Highway). Here, visitors can enjoy sweeping views, explore the visitor center, climb to the top of the lighthouse, and experience the life of a lighthouse keeper in the early 1920s. The Split Rock Lighthouse was built in 1909 after many devastating waves destroyed precious cargo ships containing iron ore. During the early days of the lighthouse, it was only accessible by water, but it still attracted many visitors. A tramway was established in 1915, and when Highway 61 was completed, the lighthouse became accessible by land.

Today, the lighthouse is a historic landmark destination that has been restored to its original 1920 appearance. Visitors can tour the keeper house, the lighthouse, the supply building, the oil house, and other on-site historical buildings. The museum includes exhibits and artifacts, plus a short educational film. All of the outdoor areas of the park are open daily from 8 am to 10 pm. Spend a pleasant afternoon walking the grounds and hiking down to the lake. Don't miss out on a chance to see Split Rock Lighthouse the next time you're in northeastern Minnesota.
