Lovely lighthouse and grounds - easy walk from parking lot - no stairs - lighthouse open and houses a wonderful museum - though no gift shop. Very scenic setting.

This area had plenty of walking paths and viewing for taking pics of the ocean and surrounding areas. The lighthouse contained info regarding historical events.

The lighthouse has recently been redone and has a really interesting exhibit on the lives of some of the people who have lived in the area for hundreds of years. Would recommend

When open you certainly get a great history lesson from the interpretation centre. However you don't need to wait for the opportunity to go inside to enjoy Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse. Take a walk around the trails, breathe the sea salt air, listen to waves crash on the beach and reflect on life in scenic beauty. The beach, the cliff... More

We really enjoyed this lighthouse. It's very picturesque and interesting. There are stories around the campfire if you pick the right time and a small cabin filled with pictures and pieces of history. There are walking paths with a guided tour if you choose, or you can go on your own. It was well worth stopping here.

Easy access & parking along coast; museum inside has excellent history of area & generations of families who manned the lighthouse, their devotion & ruggedness; small trail alongside is for the steady-of-foot but provides even more spectacular views up & over Gulf of St. Lawrence...small admission charge to museum is well worth the price.

Pretty lighthouse near Rocky Harbor. Interior had very nice exhibits and information on lighthouse keeper life. Several nice trails giving beautiful views, they were a little slick and muddy in spots but overall well maintained.

We enjoyed stopping here and going for a nice walk down onto the rocky beach. The lighthouse is a museum showing the home that the lighthouse keepers lived in. The staff there were very friendly and helpful. This was one of the nicer stops we made in Gros Morne.
