Not visible from the landing, but clearly seen from a park a mile or so up-river - or by taking a boat ride. On a small island in the middle of the Hudson River.

Absolutely stunning. Go at high tide near sunset or sunrise for amazing photo ops. Shoot photos of the train station across the river or the Roundout creek your choice! Very easy paddle from Kingston.

It's a shame the main road "Roundout landing"doesn't follow the creek all the way, we actually had to do a little trespassing to get a good view at the lighthouse.

We boarded a Hudson Cruise boat at the HRMM and traveled to the mouth of the Rondout Creek to tour the lighthouse. The tour is led by a knowledgable guide who answers questions as well as narrating. Not handicapped accessible due to many stairs.
