Awesome View, Excellent Park and Cool little Historical Museum. A must stop with the family and you can't get a better look at the north end of LBI than from this tower.

We went here on a nice day with my 18-month old as going to the beach can get a bit tiring. There's a nice walk/boardwalk on the water's edge to see birds and dolphins in the water. It's free for the walk and only $3 if you want to climb the 200+ stairs at the top of the lighthouse (we... More

I love coming to "the lighthouse" and just hanging out on the jetty and watching the fisherman and the boats coming in and out of the inlet. My parents would take me here a few times a year when I was a kid and we do the same with my kids as well.

Every year since the kids were very small we have taken them to the lighthouse. Two hundred seventeen steps to the top on a winding spiral staircase. The view from the top is breathtaking and you will want to get photos. Fee is $3 for adults (over 12 year olds) - think it is $1 for kids. There are a... More

Volunteers were nice and friendly. 7,8 and 12 year old all able to climb to top of lighthouse with no trouble. Views were impressive. Walk out on jetty totally worth it. Family friendly area.

My family and I went to the light house like we have done many times before but this night was special. 1. It was the anniversary of when my son got down on one knee and asked my daughter-in-law to marry him. 2. When we were there we saw dolphins jumping and playing in the water. Anyway the Barnegat Light... More

It's always great to climb to the top of the Barnegat Lighthouse. You get a fantastic view from the top of the lighthouse. The walk along the inlet is pleasant and also had great views of the boats, bay and ocean!

Wonderful way to spend a relaxing afternoon anytime of the year to visit "Old Barney". If you're brave and strong enough to climb the stairs to enjoy the spectacular view from the top. Also, walk along the cement walkway to enjoy watching the other folks doing the outside activities. Don't forget to include the "Nature Walk" on your visit.

Short weekend visit to LBI for a wedding, and we were able to squeeze in a drive to the north end for a viewing of the Barnegat Light. The park was open until 10 pm, when the gates & any remaining cars would be locked in (said the notice on the gate). If your coming at night, bring a light... More
