Mission Statement

The purpose of Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association (SPLKA) is to restore and preserve Big and Little Sable Lighthouses and the Ludington North Breakwater Light, provide education to the public about the lights, and allow the public to have the opportunity to climb the towers. Volunteers are our strength and are encouraged to play active roles in our program.


By employing over 300 resident lighthouse keepers, we at SPLKA are able to preserve, promote, educate the public, and make the lighthouses open to the global community.
