Light characteristic is a flashing red light, every 5 seconds, visible for 12 miles. Its tower has been removed, the structure is merely a 3-story base which houses the keeper's quarters, with the light mounted on a skeletal mast. The lighthouse also has a helipad. It formerly housed a non-directional beacon as part of the precision approach at Sault Ste. Marie Airport but has since been decommissioned and the antenna taken down due to high maintenance costs.
