March through Mid-May each year
Come see this North Shore icon when the scene is quiet, cold, and still. Split Rock Lighthouse historic site is open year-round, though services are limited during the spring.
Spend some time in the visitor center to see firsthand how lighthouse keepers made their unique livelihoods, and learn about the important role that shipping — and the lighthouse — played in Minnesota history. Then explore the grounds to see the lighthouse and historic buildings.
In the spring, access to the lighthouse and fog signal building is available but may be closed without notice due to weather emergencies. Guided tours are not available.
Parking in the lot requires a state parks pass or daily parking fee.
