As someone born and raised in Cape Cod, lighthouses are a fixture in my memory banks. When I moved to NJ, I had to come and see this for myself with my wife and kids. I am very glad I did! It is extremely windy up there on some days! Quaint sea-shore neighborhood leading up to the lighthouse. Please drive... More

Very enjoyable. The climb is exhausting but worth it when you get to the top to see the fantastic views. The lighthouse museum is good too.

For $3 you get a Million Dollar view of LBI from the top of the Lighthouse. Great unobstructed views up and down the shore and a fresh ocean breeze. Visit the center for a cold bottle of water for $1. Where else on earth can you get such a fantastic experience for $4?

A cute light house on LBI. You can climb the 217 steps for a $3 donation which we were happy to contribute. The stairs are steep and wide on one side narrow on the other. There is rest spots every 30 steps, although people weren't really consideration when they saw you coming and was a little difficult to pass people... More

It's worth the work to climb to the top of the lighthouse. You get to see LBI from a whole new perspective.

Been here numerous times over the years and love coming back every time! Walking paths are filled with abundant nature, watch the fishermen pull in their catch, go to top of the lighthouse for spectacular views, talk to the locals and they will educate you on the history of Barnegat Light!

For $3 you get to climb the old circular staircase to an outdoor parapet that runs around the top of the Lighthouse. Great unobstructed views up and down the shore and a fresh breeze were both welcome on this 90-degree day.

We were in Manahawkin for a couple of days and drove out to Barnegat Light one evening. It had rained and stormed on and off the entire day, but the park was open. The lighthouse was closed; I assume because of weather and we arrived later in the evening. I read that there is a small fee to climb the... More

A good way to spend a morning. Walked the jetty. Nice breeze off the water to cool an already warm morning. Great view from the top of the light house. Be warned, the climb to the top puts your stairmaster to shame.
