Normal access to Round Island Lighthouse is only by private boat or (during some winters) over the ice. The one exception is the second Saturday in July when the Round Island Lighthouse Preservation Society hosts an open house, arranges for charter boat service from Mackinac Island, and opens the lighthouse interior for viewing and photography. 

The 8th Annual Open House is scheduled for July 12, 2014. More details will be posted at roundislandlightmichigan.com/openhouse as the become available. In 2013, tours of the lighthouse were free and the boat ride was $15/round trip.
