Nice place to visit in north LBI

The lighthouse is a nice place to visit when in north LBI. The park is clean, including the restrooms. It's a nice place to watch the boats.

This was the spot chosen by our photographer for photos of our baby, and she was right. Just a great spot, clean, and can't beat the no-cost entrance fee. When our baby is older I'm sure we'll be back for the lighthouse itself.

I love lighthouses and we try to visit all that we can. This was no exception. Hubby and I traveled with our dog for the day. I knew ahead of time that dogs were not allowed. This is a shame as I don't see that they could harm anything there. We went to Absecon last year and go to Cape... More

We are birders and this is one of our go-to spots on the island. There is always something to see - snowy owls, harlequin ducks, scoters, shore birds, pelicans, warblers etc. The trail is quite nice (watch out for the poison ivy) and the jetty is great. The fishing is great, too.

Barnegat Lighthouse is a great place to build family memories. We have been going to the "shore" at Barnegat Light for over 30 years. It just feels light a great summer get-a-way. You can visit the lighthouse, go watch the boats go out fishing, hang out on the beach, get the some ice cream, sit and watch the ocean etc...... More

This is one of the better lighthouses I've climbed, because at each resting point, they have very interesting things to read. They also have little signs telling you how many steps you've taken and how many more to go. The view from the not is not spectacular, but that's not the lighthouse's fault. The little gift shop would only take... More

Visited Barnegat Lighthouse State Park for the first time this month with my Daughters - awesome time! I enjoy lighthouses & we all enjoyed the trek to the top & the fantastic views from there. The grounds are very nice as well - with an Interpretive Center, Maritime Forest Trail, & a walkway along the jetty. There are a lot... More

Only cost $3 for adults. Lighthouse enthusiasts would love the climb and view from the top. You also can walk the cement pier along the inlet. Sorry no gift shop or stickers for making it to the top.
