This lighthouse is certainly off the beaten path, but is worth visiting. It's run by volunteers, and has small museum & gift shop, but is far better than some which offer nothing besides a picture. The volunteers are extremely helpful a,d knowledgeable. The museum has a display of miniature lobster bouys (assigned to particular fishermen, and the local church made... More

Even though I once lived across the St George River from Port Clyde, I never got tired of this view. The park is open during daylight hours and has a gift shop as well

We traveled from Portland to view this lighthouse mostly because it was on Forest Gump and we wanted a scenic drive. The drive from Portland is very beautiful as it takes you through the little towns of Maine. Accessing the light house is very easy and walk a able once you park. You can also walk down to a small...

I visited in a beautiful sunny fall afternoon. The lighthouse has a great panoramic view of the water. Great photo opportunities and rocks to explore. The museum was closed when I visited but the building is nice and the area well landscaped. Great for a quick afternoon picnic at the table near the anchor. I plan a return trip.

The lighthouse from the segment of Forrest Gump's epic run across the country is in Port Clyde, Maine and can be visited. A museum is on site, and visitors can walk along the rocky shoreline, finding seashells and sea glass.

One of the most popular and photogenic lighthouses in Maine attracting loads of visitors on a sunny day. Lovely place to have a picnic with breathtaking views from either side.

As I was showing my family the numerous pictures of the numerous lighthouses I saw on my trip, I could add to this one "This was the lighthouse Forrest Gump ran to after Jenny left". That always elicited a ooo or an aaah. Other than that one of the many lighthouse I saw on my fast track through Maine.

The lighthouse is on the point with the most dramatic panoramic views of the beautiful ocean and many interesting coves. It looks like Poseiden's dream view.
