Located on the Cedar Point peninsula at the entrance to Sandusky Bay. From Route 2 or Ohio Turnpike, take Route 250 North and follow signs to Cedar Point Amusement Park.
The first lighthouse at this site along Sandusky Bay was built in 1839. The picturesque 38-foot Cedar Point Lighthouse standing today was built in 1862. The light, which was used for navigation until 1909, is located atop the lighthouse keeper’s 6-room limestone home at the tip of the Cedar Point peninsula. The home, which is not open to the public, was restored in 2001 when Cedar Point introduced the cottages and cabins of Lighthouse Point. This campground resort features the lighthouse in its logo.
