I have been to this place twice now since moving to the area. It was great both times. The staff are very nice and its a minimum donation to get into the light house. It is definitely worth it. The view is great once you make it to the top. However, I will say it's not for the faint of heart! You have to climb A LOT of stairs to make it to the top and if you're afraid of heights, probably not the best idea. Other than that, the only thing that is a hassle is the checkpoint into the area because it's on a military base, but this is understandable and the guys are usually friendly.
