The lighthouse was just ok but the walks around it was wonderful. We spent a few hours walking the trails. Glad we did. There was an area, at the ocean, that the teenagers made. Fun to see. If the weather is nice, the walks are worth the visit!

This location is very photogenic. The colours can be very vivid, especially with a dark sky in the west. Bring a camera for sure

Great stop to learn lots. Staff lady was very knowledgeable and very nice. Great pictures and room to hike around. Lots of history here and the lighthouse is still functional and we saw the 2 second on and off light from Rocky Harbour at night

Relive the lightkeepers home. Excellent presentation by the park's staff. Be sure to walk around the grounds to the lookouts.

The views and trails at the light house were amazing. A beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Clean and parking was no problem.

The newly renovated lighthouse is very interesting. All park staff are knowledgeable and helpful. They helped with tracing our family history, and have many binders of interesting people and places you are welcome to look through.
