Cana Island Lighthouse & Tower remains one of the Door County’s premier tourist attractions despite the fact that the island is occasionally, once again, a true island.
The waters of Lake Michigan, at times, cover the causeway leading from the mainland parking lot to the island. This has been troublesome for some visitors.
Help has arrived for those who would prefer not to get their feet wet. The museum has implemented a tractor-drawn hay wagon with seats and sides to traverse the causeway. Those planning to walk across the causeway are urged to have water-repellent footwear to avoid injury from rocks and sharp zebra mussels that have been deposited on the causeway.
While strong winds and waves might cause an occasional lighthouse closing, the opportunity still exists to see one of the most photographed lighthouses on Lake Michigan.
