Disappointed that we could not climb the 93 stairs as it was wrapped in plastic while being painted. Will for sure return when it reopens in May.

Wonderful rainy day experience! The ladies and gentleman in the gift shop were a hoot! Learn even more history from them!

If you like lighthouses, then stop by this decommissioned lighthouse and take a tour. Stay and visit with the volunteers if you have the time.

The admission fee into the park was $7.00 per vehicle and then we signed up at the info center for the lighthouse tour which was free.

We were interested in visiting a real working lighthouse. We paid our seven bucks and were not even able to get into the lighthouse as it was under construction.

It is great to see a structure from 1871 to be kept up in such great shape, nice place to take a break from driving up the coast. There is also a memorial for local sailors that lost there lives in the Pacific.
