Lighthouse Point Park is a county park, not part of the lighthouse. It does have a $5 fee, but it's a great park with nice boardwalks and a long jetty which is usually loaded with fishermen. It's also got a section of dog beach well isolated the swimming area. We live nearby and by a season pass. Great picnic place.

What a lovely area to take a stroll by the sea and watch dolphin playing nearby. People surf and fish here to. Many sea birds are also in this area including pelican. Nearby are restrooms and the lighthouse and a play area. There is also a picnic area. The entrance fee is $5 dollars and it shuts at 6 p.m.

The history of the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is very interest and it is surrounded by a beautiful State Park with sand dunes and beaches and of course the inlet. Great outing for the family.

I did not know about this when visiting the Lighthouse but saw the pier from the top of the lighthouse and went looking for it. This park is so beautiful and the pier is just unbelievable. make sure you visit here along with the lighthouse.

We loved taking photos of the lighthouse and the surrounding grounds, but decided not to pay $5 and climb up to the top. The area is very pretty and clean.

We arrived a little late in the day but were able to take a nice walk on the pier to watch the fishermen who were being very successful. Beware that the state park closes at 6:00 sharp and the gates are locked-- which we - along with several other cars --found out when we tried to exit. We waited and... More

This park is a rarity among restored lighthouses in the US. Usually, a single keepers house, often attached to the light, is the only building available for tourists. Lighthouse Point Park hosts the houses of the lighthouse keeper and those of his two assistants. Each has been fully furnished to give a flavor of the daily life of the keepers... More
