“Lovely Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I always like it when lighthouses are open to the public and this one is. It is a nice climb and beautiful views from the top of the lighthouse. Price is reasonable for the climb. Easy trail takes you from the parking lot to the lighthouse. It is a nice addition to your visit to Assateague.

“A Nice Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The Assateague Lighthouse is a charming place to visit while on Chincoteague Island. It is about a quarter of a mile walk to get there and you walk up a sandy path on the way. The lighthouse is very big and during the hours that it's open you can walk up to the top. Other than that it is a nice place to take pictures and enjoy your surroundings.

“Wonderful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The Assateague Lighthouse was one of the highlights of my trip. Lots of stairs to climb to get to the top, but it's all worth it when you step outside and see the view from the top, of the whole island and it's surroundings. The staff is very informative and helpful, and make sure when you get to the top you ask for your sticker that says, "I climbed to the top of the lighthouse!"
