5 Things You Need To Know


Cana Island Lighthouse is located on the Western shore of the Door County Peninsala. Parking for the lighthouse is located at the end of E Cana Island Rd., and can be limited depending on the time of year. 

Please note that cell service can be unreliable in the area, so it's a good idea to review your route before leaving. 

The lighthouse is located on the small Cana Island, which is connected via land bridge. There are no vehicles allowed on the bridge, so you will need to walk or use the hay wagon ride. 


The lighthouse operates with varying hours throughout the year. The parking area and island are open year round. 

Season: May through October

Hours: 7 days a week, 10am - 5pm (last tower climb at 4:30pm)

Tractor & Haywagon Ride

A tractor pulled hay wagon is available during the season open hours. This wagon will transport you from the parking area to Cano Island, allowing you to climb the tower. 

When lake levels are high, the land bridge can be covered with water. The wagon will help you get to the island easily. 

The hay wagon ride is included with your lighthouse admission.
