Point Clark, located on the shores of Lake Huron is famous for the Point Clark Lighthouse. The lighthouse was built between 1855 and 1859 to warn sailors of the shoal about three kilometers offshore. The lighthouse is unique in that it is built of limestone with elegant prortions and is one of six built in the region, with a style rarely seen anywhere else in Canada. The 110-foot stone tower is topped by a 12-sided lantern framed in cast iron, with a domed roof. A bronze lion head at each angle of the eaves directs rainwater away from the tower. The light stands 87 feet from the base of the tower.
The lighthouse still aids in the navigation of ships off its shore. Today the lighthouse and a museum, located in the light keepers dwelling are open to the public from late June until Labour Day.
The area is steeped in maritime history. Many ship wrecks are located close by. Just 20 meters off shore the boiler of the Erie Belle juts out of the water. " Boiler Beach", is a sandy beach with large rocks that are visible here and there in the water.
Four trails wind through the Point Clark trail system, called the Point Clark Greenway Project. The Deer Run Nature Trail, Attawondaron Nature Trail, Clark Creek Floodplain and the Tuscarora Road Nature Trail are multi-use, all-season trails.
