The lighthouse is a nice place to visit. Have to go at low tide. It is a moderate walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse.

It was a nice sunny day and we decided to take the short walk through the woods/along the shore to the light house. It was interesting to see the old docks and how things have moved/changed over the decades/century. There is a nice deck/ picnic...More

There’s no fee to walk to and see the lighthouse . It costs to stay in the lighthouse as a guest.

Parking about a half mile away from waterfront. Path to water is clearly marked and is marsh-like. You'll want to stay on the path. Wouldn't recommend for small children or if easy access is important.
