Cana Island Lighthouse

A part of Door County’s Maritime Heritage is being preserved for future generations through the Cana Island Lighthouse.  Door County acquired the property from the Federal Bureau of Land Management as the US Coast Guard relinquished use. A relationship with the Door County Maritime Museum has been established to preserve the property and lighthouse.  There is limited parking on the mainland along East Cana Island Road.

The island itself is open to the public a half-hour before sunrise till a half-hour after sunset.  From 10 am to 5 pm a fee is required to access the island which includes admission to the lighthouse and an additional fee is charged to climb the tower.  For more information see the Door County Maritime Museum website at
