Located two miles north of Harrisville, Sturgeon Point Lighthouse is a 60-acre State-owned park with free admission and grounds open year round. Habitat includes Lake Huron sand dunes, stunted growth trees, bushes and lake grasses with wetlands along the old lane, and mature hardwoods and conifers. Nesting species include American Redstart, Red-eyed Vireo, Yellow Warblers and N. Cardinals. A wide variety of birds migrate through the park and use the 1.5 mile shoal out into the big lake as a gathering point. A resident Bald Eagle frequently circles the lighthouse tower for the enjoyment of visitors. Lighthouse is open Memorial Day through Labor Day Weekend.
