Tawas point Lighthouse, in operation since 1876, and now part of Tawas Point State Park, is a fascinating attraction for maritime buffs. Tawas Point is also a mecca for birdwatchers, especially in the migration seasons of spring and fall. Tawas Point also offers spectacular views of sunrises over Lake Huron and sunsets over Tawas Bay. Guided tours are available from Memorial Day through Labor Day 12 to 6 pm every day except for Tuesdays. Call to set up a group tour or check the off-season hours. Also, a gift shop. Tawas Point State Park is offering the opportunity to be a lighthouse keeper at the Tawas Point Lighthouse and stay in the newly renovated lighthouse keeper’s quarters. The lighthouse keeper program is available for one- or two-week stays, during which the lighthouse keeper(s) will be responsible for a variety of duties, including greeting guests, providing information about the history of the lighthouse, helping in the gift shop and taking care of the various artifacts located in the lighthouse museum.
