The lighthouse was removed years ago! Great views, fishing, trails and beaches but no lighthouse. Part of Fort Flagler state park lots to do but no lighthouse to see.

From Port Townsend WA it's about a thirty minute drive. It's one of many lighthouses in the area to help mariners navigate the waters and islands. My favorite part was enjoying the beach walk with huge piles of driftwood. The views are lovely. The wildflowers are amazing. I found the largest rose hips I've ever seen.

From Port Townsend, it's about 30 minutes by car. I was blessed to visit with friends who knew the way. The sights on the lighthouse and island are lovely but the best views were leaving the island at sunset time. It was magnificent looking over the water and bridge. The island was first homesteader in 1865-1870, tourists are attracted by... More

We were sad to see that the lighthouse built in 1913 was no longer being kept in repair. That being said, it is a lovely setting and worth stopping to see!

This was a nice outing - the park is great - lots of trails - and lots of peaceful places. Views from the park are wonderful and it appears they have great rentals for individuals and groups.

Marrowstone Point is not a true lighthouse, it is a light "station". It's a small, square building, sort of behind other buildings. It is located right at Fort Flagler, on Marrowstone Island but apparently is not part of the actual state park. You can get out to the light station but you have to walk out along the beach, which...

Skip this area, there is absolutely nothing to see here except another angle of the sound. Skip this lighthouse, not much to look at except for people fishing on the shore and a few buildings with a light bulb on top of a small pole! We went out of our way to see this area and were incredibly disappointed when... More

This is on the point below Fort Flagler and is reached through the Fort. You can drive to the gate and walk around the outside of the fence but can not go in. The best views are from the east side, out by the water.

This low lighthouse is actually being used by the University of Washington as a research facility. The light runs by computer. If you are at Fort Flagler State Park, a quick look at the lighthouse is worthwhile. You can not go in the building, but you can take a picture.
