Foggy and cloudy, the view from the lighthouse was not really that exciting. The lighthouse was not open either. Still, a good detour driving south on the Viking Trail.

Grose Morne is an wonderful park but not friendly to mobility challenged persons. This attraction allows close parking and a short walk. Although I,was not able to take the short walk around the lighthouse the views allowed were incredible. Park representative friendly, knowable and fun.

The Lighthouse itself was closed to visitors by the time we got there. We were looking for a campfire but couldn't find it. See my review about Gross Morne park for more details. We would have enjoyed some of the activities inside the lighthouse. Thanks to the Explorer programme through Parks Canada, the kids were really interested in the information... More

We came to Lobster Cove to join the Fire Circle program, and it was amazing. Learning about and experiencing the Aboriginal tradition with Kevin was a great experience.

Wasn't sure what was down at the lighthouse so I was very happy to see the views of the lighthouse from all angles. The trails show you the fantastic shoreline. We weren't there when it was open so we didn't see the staff but the signage did tell us a great deal of the story.

The lighthouse is picturesque from many angles. The grounds have several paths and trails that lead to the bay. We saw minke whales just off the shore. We went after hours so we cannot comment on the staff or other amenities available during regular hours.

Stopped at Lobster Cove Lighthouse on our way to Rocky Harbour. Views of the shoreline and bay in Gros Morne are spectacular. While there, a friendly interpreter also gave our group an impromptu interative song and dance presentation! Nice unexpected touch.

The lighthouse was closed for renovations but the walking trails around the lighthouse were awesome.

We enjoyed our walk to and around the lighthouse. We were there at sunset and it was quite stunning. It was very easy to get to and is wheelchair accessible. We were delighted to be treated to an impromptu visit by a dolphin! The view of the town of Rocky Harbour was another treat.
