It is gated but on your way there you will find gorgeous houses, peaceful setting. I go and take my ride up when I have my grandbaby with me so that she can look at a close up of the light house.

Beautiful area. Photographers will love it here. Capture Rhode Islands beauty by visiting this lighthouse. It took my breath away.

i like lightouses and see how they were built to help protect those out a sea in days before radar was around and the sea was rough. These buildings and those who worked them were so brave and the buildings just did one job and did it well. This one in Warwick Neck was one of those who helped protect... More

We traveled to see the lighthouse and could only get as far as the front gate. No one was there to see or ask any questions. It looked smaller in the pictures I saw but it looked like a fun place to visit. On the way there you pass by several large wonderful mansions one of them the Aldridge is... More

Not open to the public. Its an Official residence of the Coast Guard. It is surrounded by private residences.

I was so disappointed when we eventually located the lighthouse at the deadened of a street in a development with chain link fence and stop signs abound. Don't bother! What a waste.

You can get in, not worth trying to find to just get a pic thru the gates with 3 large STOP Signs on them! Not worth going, FYI

Lighthouse itself is not accessible. It is fenced off. The trip through the gorgeous neighborhood is worth the drive.

This was one of our stops, as we were viewing all of Rhode Island's lighthouses this week. This is a lovely lighthouse! We would have liked to go all the way up to it, but the gate was locked. While we were there, some workers arrived, and offered to let us take pictures while they had the gate open! It... More

You can get a nice view of it by driving to the end of Warwick Neck Road and peering through the gates, or, if you have access to a boat, the best views are from the water. A Coast Guard family lives in the light keepers house. Even if the gates are open, it's not ok to go through them... More
