Proceed approx. 3.5 miles, turn right onto Cana Island Road. Follow the road to where it ends at the lighthouse. Small lighthouse signs will guide you along the way.

Please know that the lighthouse is located at the end of a narrow rustic road that runs through a residential area. A parking lot is located on the SE corner of Cana Island Road and Cana Cove Road. Enter the parking lot at the first driveway on the right, past Cana Cove Road.

To be kind to the neighbors:

  • Please drive slowly and cautiously, and obey all posted speed limits.
  • Watch for children and pets.
  • Parking is prohibited on Cana Island Rd.
  • Do not litter.

In general, please be extremely courteous and respectful of Cana Island’s neighbors. Thank you!


Please be aware that due to high lake levels, water now regularly flows over the causeway to Cana Island. We offer a complimentary tractor and haywagon ride to shuttle you over to the island.
If you do choose to walk across, come prepared with boots or other footwear that can withstand the water and protect your feet.
