Cape Croker

Somewhat resembling a giant torch, the Cape Croker Lighthouse marks the northern shore of Colpoy's Bay, found along the east side of Ontario's Bruce Peninsula. While its tower couldn't be more different, the lantern atop of the fifty-three foot octagonal tower is similar to those atop of the magnificent Imperial Towers. It contains a powerful, third order Fresnel clamshell lens and displays a flashing green light for more than 15 miles into the Georgian Bay. The tower itself is no wider than the lens and is almost pedestal-like. Though not open for tours, it may be photographed.

Directions: To find the lighthouse, follow Highway 6 near Wiarton, then follow County Road 9 and then County Road 18 for ten miles. Turn right onto the road to Cape Croker Park. Ahead of you lies 16 miles of winding unmarked road to the lighthouse.
