  • Go on a clear day when the lighthouse is open. From the bottom it doesn't look nearly as tall as it is. They only let 5-10 folks up at once but the views are worth the wait. At the top you can walk ar...  more »

  • Bring all types of mosquito repellent (bug sprays, mosquito netting, bug zappers, etc.) Make sure you put bug spray on before you get to the park, put on more bug spray once you get to the park and carry the bug spray with you to put more on as you walk up to the lighthouse. The mosquitoes are very very bad. The walk to and from the lighthouse is a nice short walk with a lot of mosquitos. If the mosquitos didn't scare you back to your vehicle or carry you away and you made it to the lighthouse, the property and the lighthouse is well maintained. I didn't realize that the lighthouse was opened, there was two groups of us and not one of us walked up to the door to see if you could go inside. Next time I'll check the door and I will be much more prepared for the mosquitos.
  • Never up in the lighthouse in my past visits. Great landmark. Great view from the top.
  • Why is it closed from 12-12:30 in the middle of the day? Walked up there, mosquitos bit us the whole way, we see that it's closed once we finally arrive. Sign out front says open 9-3. When we went back we were able to climb the lighthouse - beautiful! However, it should not be closed like that in the middle of the day.
  • Well maintained. Didn't realize it was open. Wish I had taken a closer look.
  • It's a great little lighthouse, be sure to dip yourself in mosquito spray before you go. The further I walked in the trail to go see the lighthouse, the more I was bombarded with suicidal mosquitoes. It was unreal.
