An interesting and still important lighthouse that can be visited but not climbed. (NOTE: The lighthouse is currently under construction, and is expected to re-open in summer 2013, with the ability to be climbed for the first time)

Being that this was our first trip to the outer banks we wanted to get a look at the different lighthouses. The park is very well kept.

Beautiful views! Make sure you look up the stairs in the center before you start or after you finish the climb.

200+ steps to the top, old iron stairways, well kept grounds, great little gift shop. The only reason I can't give 5 stars is that the high winds kept the balcony closed, and you can't go up the the glass windows. But there are some...More

I wish I could have gone in to the lighthouse but it was closed due to weather and high winds. The grounds were well kept and it was very pretty.

We really regretted not getting to go to the top. Do it if you think you can! We just weren't feeling that well. The gift shop was nice, though. It's small, but well designed and the staff were friendly and helpful.

If possible, attend one of the informative sessions provided by the Parks Service. We learned lots of wonderful information and even purchased a couple of books.
