Thanks to John Kulpa for these directions: This light, is, of course, out in the water, but good views are available from the end of the inlet light's pier or from the state marina where there is ample parking and you don't have to walk nearly as far. Note, though, the breakwater appears to be totally submerged. My guess would be age and erosion, because the breakwater pier was also in pretty sorry shape and the lake levels did not look significantly high.
