AAA Editor Notes
Au Sable Light Station is about 12 mi. w. of Grand Marais; tours begin from the Au Sable Maritime Museum, which is on Au Sable Point in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Tours of the 87-foot structure, which was built 1873-74, last 30-40 minutes. The light has been automatic since 1958.
Visitors must walk 1.5 miles on a wooded footpath from the Hurricane River Campground to reach the light station. The area includes very sandy soils, narrow sidewalks and steps to access the buildings.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
