The Spring Point Ledge Light Trust was formed by the Portland Harbor Museum in early 1998 to acquire ownership of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. The lighthouse was one of 28 in the state of Maine which were being turned over to non-profit organizations and governmental agencies under the Maine Lights Program. The transfer of ownership took place in a public ceremony in Rockland, ME on June 20, 1998.

  • Great place to sit and relax. Beautiful area, daughter was student at SMCC and would like to walk to lighthouse when visiting.  more »
  • Loved walking out to the jetty and we do it during all 4 seasons. Pleasant sitting on the far side on the rocks watching the lobster boats.  more »
  • Less well known that its neighbour the Portland Head Light this tiny lighthouse at the end of a long Pier offers fabulous views of each side. Less busy, but always very photogenic

  • Parking was tough. You are on a college campus and many of the parking spots are reserved. You can climb out on the rocks and walk out to the lighthouse. Great picture opportunities and lots of fun. Mind the smaller children because there are some deep cracks between the rocks but nothing too dangerous. We went in the late afternoon and the pictures were fantastic.
  • This is a great lighthouse to visit and is just across the water from Old Port (the historic part of Portland). Totally worth the visit and a great spot for some photos. It looks like you might be able to tour it during special hours or by request- wish I would've looked into that before we visited since we like history!
  • One of the historic lighthouses close to downtown Portland. Free admission. Worth a visit if you are in town and have a car. Bundle up if you are visiting in the winter as the weather can be quite brutal around the area.
  • I love lighthouses, and if the weather is okay, you can actually walk out to this one. A fun ledge lighthouse and beautiful surroundings! A must stop on the way from Acadia to Portland!
  • Just a small walk from the Bug Lighthouse, we visited Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. We walked the rocky path to the islands edge to visit this beautiful lighthouse. Amazing views! We are so in love with all the beauty that Maine offers. Follow our adventure (see more photos) via Facebook/Instagram @ Happy Campers 227 as we travel this beautiful country full time.
