We love lighthouses! This one has a most beautiful view AND if you arrive during low tide, you can walk across to it...if not...you can just view it from the other side as we did. When we visited, a lady was there in her chair waiting for whales to breach! We waited for a while, saw a species of dolphins,... More

The natural beauty of this spot must make it popular with travelers in the summer. It was nearly deserted in September which gave us an excellent opportunity to do some great bird watching. Dramatic cliffs and rocks.

This older lighthouse is a bit of a challenge to get to but it is well worth it. The small lighthouse keepers cottage, the climb to the light room and the views are quite spectacular. The whales and dolphins nearby was an added bonus. Thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. Make sure you wear good shoes and backpack your camera as the... More

At low tide you can go out to the lighthouse. When we were there no buildings were open, but we went out to the island. For a small fee, you can climb down the metal stairs, cross a seaweed covered island, go up another set of stairs, cross anther seaweed cover island until you come to a rather scary steep... More

My wife and I enjoy visiting lighthouses so we could not pass up the opportunity to see this one. The road out to the lighthouse is very scenic. My wife spotted and photographed a bald eagle on the way out. When we got out of our car in the parking lot we say a group of people gazing off the... More

Lots of fun to climb up and down metal ladders to reach Lightstation. Great views all around. $5 fee helps support maintence of property.

This had to be one of the most fascinating light stations I've ever visited. You need sneakers- the trail over the rocks and beach is rough along with the ladders! It's a bit of an adventure just to get there. And then you are treated to a gorgeous little house and a guide will take you up the steps to... More

We visited at low tide and were able to cross over the rock, trails and stairs to approach the lighthouse by land. It is a bit slippery and treacherous. The views around the area are stunning, as is the lighthouse itself. A must see!

After our visit at Campobello we decided to drive to the Quoddy lighthouse. It was a treat to see how the lighthouse stood tall on a cliff that was separated from mainland by a deep crevasse. We happened to be at low tide and were able to scale down to the rocky shore by ladder. Then scramble over to another... More
