LUDINGTON — Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association (SPLKA) is seeking volunteers for the summer at its four lighthouses: Big Sable Point in Ludington State Park, Ludington North Breakwater, Little Sable Point in Mears and White River Light Station near Whitehall.

“We actively seek fun-loving individuals to assist with our volunteer resident keeper season, helping us to operate these historic landmarks while living at the lights,” said Peter Manting, executive director of SPLKA. “Clean and comfortable accommodations are offered free of charge within houses in Ludington State Park and Silver Lake State Park grounds, where you can enjoy the sand dunes and evergreen forests on your way to work at Lake Michigan among friends. One week and two week tours are available, May-October.”

To inquire as to which dates are still available, email to or call 231-845-7417. Learn more about the program at

Daykeeping opportunities are also available at Little Sable, White River Light Station and the Ludington North Breakwater Light, as well as volunteer opportunities in the Nights at the Light programs at all four lighthouses.
