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.

    A surprise. We chanced to Portland South and this wonderful lighthouse at the end of a pier of rocks is spectacular. In the middle of the sea, the photos will be gorgeous, and there are some benches on the pier to take the Sun. Not to be missed

    A great lighthouse with nice harbor views from out on the jetty. Mind the occassional large gap between some of the giant slabs of rock if you venture out onto the jetty. If you do, you'll be rewarded with a great 360° panorama of the harbor. The visitor parking was limited, but other spots normally in use by the community college where the park is located were available. Don't miss driving over to nearby Bug Light. It's five minutes away and is a unique style of lighthouse that is very easily accessible.

    Free parking Free admission Easy to find via GPS No public restrooms No water fountain Not child stroller accessible Not wheel chair accessible Great little park and beach. Wear comfortable shoes because the terrain is uneven and you could easily injure yourself on the rock path to the lighthouse. There is a grocery store (HannaFord) a few miles away with public restrooms. I would advise using the restroom before going to this park. You can also buy sunscreen, water and snacks for your lighthouse visit.

    Great lighthouse, and a fun walk across the stone slabs out to into the water. If you are clumsy, be careful when stepping across the gaps!

    Great place to take a walk and watch the sunset. Bring a jacket to keep yourself warm around sunset as it is pretty windy there.

    Really loved this lighthouse. It was a great exercise course for my little Bichon (he's a little 15 pounder), and great for anyone who wants to mix up their walk a bit. The lighthouse itself is reminiscent of a steel ferry or other boat with the meshed stairs, wraparound deck, and black and white color scheme. You can see Portland Headlight at a distance on a decently medium-visibility day.
