This is a great spot to visit, awesome views and a historical lighthouse. It is hard to find but once you get there, it is worth it.

The lighthouse offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. You have to walk a bit uphill, and it's a little tight up there. There is a small gift shop, but there aren't any snacks here. The beach is extremely rocky from what we saw. There...More

We were fortunate to go when they were open on a Monday. The line was about 30 minutes long to walk inside the lighthouse itself. The volunteers were very informative. Fascinating views and history of the bay area.

We visited Park in the evening so there was plenty of parking. Beautiful views of the A's and the boats out there. I love me strong. We really enjoyed our time

In my opinion, this ranks just slightly behind Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, and that is nothing to be ashamed of at all. Some of the views along the walk to the lighthouse from the parking lot are really special. It's a bit of a walk up...More
