Lakeside Park Lighthouse and Observation Deck

Enjoy a magnificent view from the 40-foot-high observation deck of the lighthouse! Climb your way to the top for a spectacular view of Lakeside Park and Lake Winnebago. The Lighthouse is the city’s signature attraction and most photographed structure in town. Built in 1933 during the Great Depression, the bottom 10 feet consists of a flagstone covered base, while the upper section of the tower is of frame construction. A wooden staircase attached to the interior walls of the lighthouse winds up through the tower, permitting visitors to reach the observation deck, where an amazing view of Lakeside Park awaits you. The lighthouse is decorated and spotlighted for the holidays every December. Self-guided tours May–Oct 15, weather permitting. 8am–dusk. Free. A great photo op for your group!
