You'll need a boat or a kayak to get here. The island is a park with a trail around the periphery (with some drop-offs to the rocks below) and another that crosses the island. There's several wooden chairs where you can enjoy a picnic, watch the schooners and lobsterman go by. We've been several times and rarely encounter other guests. Do be respectful of the carekeeper's home and garden. The lighthouse is not open for visitors. No cost.

You could only see from a distance. I believe it might be privately owned. Other things to do in the area.

Beautiful views from the water when you take a boat ride around the island and Camden Harbor. Perfect day!

Camden Harbor is arguably the jewel of the town but also as collected a cruising harbor as you still find on the coast. Curtis is the telltale of the only way into the generous harbor it served and still serves today. As an aside its is a wonderfully practical structure in tune with its setting.

If you're driving along Bay View Street in Camden, it's easy to miss the signs about the lighthouse. A short path from the street will lead you to the overlook, which has one bench in front of some rocks upon which you should not climb, since it's treacherous on them. The views are great. They made me think of a Edward Hopper or Andrew Wyeth painting. In mid-September on a Friday morning I was the only one there. There's only one parking spot across from the path, so you might have to walk a bit if you don't get the spot.
