We were looking for a light house and something fun to do. This would be hard to find without an online map, but there was parking and bathrooms. We enjoyed the short trail hike to the light house. The steps were new with rails. Great view.

We were already in Rockland so we thought we'd take a spin out here and I could get another stamp in my lighthouse book. Great spot and nice lighthouse, just disappointed that it was not staffed per their hours listed so I couldn't get my stamp. We arrived by 3, but the shop was closed. Oh well, I'll have to... More

This lighthouse is in the Rockland area, and even a nice place to picnic or just bring a chair and read and enjoy the scenery. It a bit of a walk up to the lighthouse and stairs also. But, there is a ramp for those who don't want to do steps, so at least you can get closer to the... More

This is an absolutely beautiful spot. The view from the lighthouse is stunning and we were even able to go inside it. I took many photos! Highly recommended if you love lighthouses or are just a lover of beautiful scenery.

As we love to check out lighthouses wherever we go, this was one of the fun ones we visited on a beautiful summer day. This is a very popular attraction, so expect to see a lot of people in the summertime. Well worth your attention if you like lighthouses.

This lighthouse is in the Owls Head Park. It requires a short walk of about 500', and good set of stairs followed by a climb into the lighthouse. We saw a number of people walking this with a cane or a walker, which I would not recommend. The lighthouse give you a nice view of the harbor, and the attendant... More

Worth the ride, worth the walk, can be a bit of a walk for some, worth the climb up in the lighthouse. Wonderful picnic area with tables, plenty of parking. Don't miss this lighthouse.

This lighthouse was a bit out of the way for us, so I was hoping for more in the way of a view and/or scenery. Getting into the lighthouse itself for the views is a dicey proposition, as it relies on volunteers. Unfortunately for us, the lighthouse wasn't open the day we visited, so our views were limited to what... More
