We arrived a hour before it was scheduled to open. Two ladies were running the show. I asked if we could go up and they said yes. We went up by ourselves. Loved the view. I've never been in a lighthouse like this before. It was cool. When we came down one of the ladies give us ideas as to... More

This was a lovely experience in visiting a lighthouse and actually fabricated lighthouse keeper's home. There is a giant looking pirate ship and lovely playground for children in a quiet and well tended park. The history found inside the lighthouse Keeper's house was facinating and interesting.. There had been two keepers of the lighthouse and two homes constructed .. pretty... More

Great place to learn some local history and if you can goto the top of the light house. Easy to access off of Hwy 98 and even has a play ground for the little ones. Personal tour of the keeper house is a great touch.

There was some interesting historical information available inside the museum. Be aware that the museum doesn't open until noon, and the lighthouse is only open to go inside on Saturday and Sunday and it carries a fee.

The lighthouse is neat, but not as cool as the big wooden play ship behind it. Our kids (7 & 5) loved it. Good picnic area. Two negatives: restrooms are only open when the gift shop is (weekend afternoons), and there were quite a few large wood boring bees flying around.

This lighthouse is open weekend for you to climb to the top. Small museum and gift shop. Volunteers were very friendly and informative. A replica pirate ship is also on the grounds for kids.

We had never seen a lighthouse construced like this one before. My wife couldn't stop taking pictures. Playground pirate ship looked to be special fun for kids.

The Crooked River Lighthouse is just outside Carrabelle, FL. There is an excellent museum. Check days and hours of operation before you plan your trip. The staff was very helpful and there are a couple of different information videos to watch.

I had never been to a metal lighthouse and was looking forward to seeing it and possibly climbing it. The climb was not completed because it is only open 2 days of the week. Additionally, there was no way for ventilation in the lighthouse, and it was an extremely hot day. However, it was an awesome sight to see up... More

While returning home from Apalachicola, FL, we stopped at the Crooked River Lighthouse in Carrabelle, FL (right off US Hwy 98). The lighthouse is a fourth rebuild of the lighthouse initially built on Dog Island, just across the bay from Carrabelle. After three hurricanes and three lighthouse destructions, the last and current iteration of the lighthouse was a redesign from... More
