  • Very unique scene. A wooden house in the middle of nowhere. A bit unreal.
  • Very informative visit. Be sure to go when a ranger is there to answer questions. Worth a trip for sure!!
  • The knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff make this a must visit national park site.
  • Beautiful location and wonderful docents make this a must-do stop on the outer Cape. Even better on a blustery grey day when the ocean looks raw and wild.
  • Wonderful and educational trip for the family or just adults. Amazing view of the beach and ocean. Has bathrooms/showers/changing areas for the public (seasonal)
