  • I wrote this on the state park review, but wanted to make sure to leave a good review here. As it was a sweet experience! The light house is beautiful! With views galore! The little gift shop attendant was a delight! Answered all my questions and was super sweet! Clean and friendly. This was my second time here and would go back again.
  • Cute lighthouse, but you can't get a really good look at it from that close. It's really beautiful from the sea, from the looks of the pictures. It's worth the trek up there if you're a lighthouse lover, though.
  • The most gorgeous breathtaking lighthouse I have ever been too! Be sure to climb down on to the beach and walk the shore. There is a rope there to help you up and down. Take a little hike through woods to get some more gorgeous views!
  • Nice trek to the lighthouse and a great view once you get there.
  • The shirt walk to the lighthouse was well worth the panoramic view of the Harbor. The lighthouse was beautiful as well. The ladies in the gift shop were very nice to speak with.
