Open Tower Days- Cancelled for 2020
Unfortunately due to the COVID Pandemic the Wind Point Lighthouse will not be open to the public for guided tours and climbs up the lighthouse tower in the summer and fall. The Lighthouse is still available for tours by private groups through reservations (see details below). The park grounds are still open daily from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Please make sure to practice proper social distancing or wear a mask when you are visiting the grounds.
Private Group Tours - COVID Restrictions
Tower Climbs for private groups can be arranged prior to the request date and are based on availability. Groups can only include individuals who live within the same household. Tower climb charge is $15.00 per adult (ages 12 and up) and $7.50 for children (ages 6-11) with an $80.00 minimum. Tower climbs are not available for children under the age of 6.

If you must cancel your private group tour, your fee will be refunded 100% if notification is made at least a month in advance.

If notification of cancellation is made less than two weeks from the tour, the fee is nonrefundable.
Park & Beach Area
The Wind Point Lighthouse is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. The park grounds are open 365 days a year, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. The park has picnic tables, benches, outdoor restrooms (seasonally), a beach area and gardens, including a memorial brick garden maintained by the Racine/Kenosha Master Gardener Association. The beach area is open for swimming but lifeguards are not present so swimming is at your own risk. There is an outdoor foot washer just outside of the restrooms. The lighthouse grounds can be rented for weddings, parties, corporate events and more. For more information, click here.
