Great to walk all the way to the top. Great views of all the Barneget inlet and fishing boats. Bring a fishing pole to fish off the rocks and catch a big fluke!

Nice to see, historical, nice walkway overlooking the bay/ocean to fish from. Lighthouse should be free to enter but I guess they need money to upkeep it.

Beautiful lighthouse. Fun to walk up to the top. You can also walk out to a pier type area and sit and watch the fisherman.

We go to the lighthouse at least twice a year. It's free before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. And only $3.00 per person during the summer months. The lighthouse has 217 steps and worth the climb for stunning views.
