Even on a weather driven day it was beautiful to visit this historic lighthouse! It is set in a beautiful refuse filled with alligators and incredible birds. Walking trails are all around as well. And, you can put your toes in the Gulf.

We visited the St. Mark’s wildlife refuge and of course we went to the Lighthouse. We couldn’t go inside the Lighthouse so we walked along a short trail and my grandbabies played along the edge of the edge of the water (all during 36 degree weather in Florida... LOL). It a beautiful place to visit.

We had a wonderful tour through the national park. The lighthouse was incredible. The butterflies especially the Monarchs were plentiful and gorgeous. We saw 2 large dolphins playing close to shore. We saw a single Flamingo today they say has been here since hurricane Michael. Beautiful and lonely. Well worth the visit.

This attraction is closed. Plus lots of bugs that bite. Keep your mouth closed if you go there. The lighthouse itself is very picturesque but not worth getting out of the car for, unless you want to hike. Beware of the bugs.

The lighthouse is a great stop, but the drive and the surrounding natural beauty is worth just as much. It is unspoiled Florida at its best. And if you haven't already, read the book Annihilation before you go. Knowing that the lighthouse and surrounding scenery was the basis for the story will give your visit an entirely different feel!

This was beautiful location. Only sad part is the inside was closed because of Covid. Would loved to have gone inside. Even the gift store at visitor store was closed -been this way for over 2 years. When all other businesses are opening so should this park. Still worth drive to check this out.

I was with my Mom & Dad in the summer of 1948. We were visiting some friends in Tallahassee,
Florida. We went to St. Mark's for a seafood lunch. While there I got to see the lighthouse.
Was a thrill for me which I would never forget. Yesterday was my 78th birthday & I still remember my first lighthouse visit. I now live in Biloxi, Ms. I have climbed many lighthouses & the one in Biloxi in 1998 which was the celebration of the 150th anniversary.. I also collect Harbour Lights lighthouse. I have collected 34 each since the early 1990's.. Half of which I have climbed & seen
in person. I recently donated all of them to the Biloxi, Ms. Visitors welcome Center. They are on display on the first floor of the welcome center.. "Keep the light shinning".

The Lighthouse is closed for tours. The wildlife reserve is beautiful- the Visitors Center is closed. “For the Health and Safety of the staff and visitors”- there are no tours.

This Lighthouse is pretty cool, unfortunately for me it was raining today. I was able to get a couple pictures. The surrounding area and drive up to the Lighthouse has some Great scenery and would be great to see on a Sunny day and take more pictures. Theres a cool platform right by the Lighthouse which you can see the surrounding area and take some good pictures of the Lighthouse.

I've been several times with a variety of groups of friends. There's great, easy nature trails with flowers and butterflies. Plenty of picnic benches so it's a great outdoor lunch spot.
