  • Very impressed about fire island the lighthouse parking as it’s February was free, but they ask $8 to take a guided tour of the lighthouse which I didn’t think was worth that.  more »

  • Great historical visit for my family. I climbed the lighthouse too. Sad to see the deer expecting to be fed. Wish people would read the signs. Extemely kind and friendly volunteers at the museum and lighthouse. Great day overall! We'll be back.
  • Great 3/4 mile boardwalk trail to lighthouse. Usually multiple deer will be visible while walking. If you decide to climb up the lighthouse the views are 1 of a kind.
  • My favorite place for a walk. Love the history and the location. Always good wildlife to watch, especially if you continue walking towards Kismet. The tower is worth the climb.
  • Beautiful place .. BONUS pet friendly too! Nice pathways to lead to the light house then a split up to either the beach or the bay on either side. Another cool thing is DEER all over and foxes sometimes.
  • A perfect round-trip walk is to take the wooded path to the lighthouse from the Field 5 parking lot (~20 minute stroll through cattails, dunes, and deer), head up the lighthouse, then walk across the sand road and over the dunes toward the beach and walk back to your car along the shoreline while watching the sun dip below the horizon in front of you. Perfect in the summer or winter.
