According to Susan R. LeFever: Take Salmon Point Road off CR 18 to the Salmon Point Campground. If you enter the campground and stop at the owner's cottage (the sign says STOP HERE) the woman will let you drive down and take photos from the road if you give her $5. Turn right just before the end of the campground road. (They rent the lighthouse so if someone's there you aren't supposed to walk on the grounds.)
