Cana Island Lighthouse Reopens

One of Door County’s most revered destinations will reopen to the public Friday, Aug. 12. The Door County Maritime Museum announced that the Phase 4 restoration work at Cana Island Lighthouse is nearly complete and the lighthouse tower and keeper’s quarters will be back open to the public on Friday, Aug. 12 at 10 am.

Cana Island Lighthouse is located at 8800 East Cana Island Road, Baileys Harbor.

“This is the culmination of years and years of planning and fundraising and restoration and preservation work that will maintain Cana Island and guest access to people for generations to come,” said Sam Perlman, DCMM Development Manager.

The project fulfills the goals of the Cana Island Light Station Historic Structures Report, published in September 2009.

The project completes a restoration of the keeper’s quarters, and entices visitors to climb the newly repainted 97 steps to the top of Door County’s most iconic lighthouse.

Admission to Cana Island will return to $12/person for adults, $10 for youth (5-17). Children age 4 and under are free, as are active military members and their immediate family (up to five members). DCMM Members also receive free admission to all museum properties.

Cana Island is open daily for the remainder of the 2022 season, 10am-5pm, through Oct. 31.
