The lighthouse is small but situated on a beautiful spot with great views. Make sure to take the cliff trail (cautiously) and follow it down to the beach area. Perfect spot to do some exploring or to have a picnic lunch. So worth it!

We really enjoyed this light house mostly because of the views from its location out over the bay. You could see islands, hundreds of lobster trap bouys and many more sail boats. It's free and there are nice picnic tables near the parking lot overlooking...More

Beautiful area. You can't enter the lighthouse which is why I gave 4 stars. Recommend if you are in the area. It is beautiful.

My wife and I love lighthouses and this is a cute little one. It is relatively short since it is located at a hilltop. It's well maintained and offers a very scenic view of Rockland Harbor. There's a cute little gift shop and a very...More

It's a nice little lighthouse that offers great views of the Rockland harbor. The road in and parking area are more than a little rough, then it's a short high up to the light. You do have to take about 60 steps to get all...More

Always relaxed fun and different. Each time I visit I notice something different. It's in a small state park that includes a beach and short hikes. It's free and a nice drive.

You don't need a lot of time to stop here, but the views are gorgeous and well worth seeing. A short walk to the lighthouse, plenty of parking=great time! We stayed in Rockland and it's not far away at all.

We hiked on a dirt road, perhaps a 1/4 to 1/2 mile and saw awesome coastal coves/scenes along the way! The lighthouse was open! What a wonderful view from the deck of the lighthouse without even climbing inside it, which did not seem to have...More

We were here during the off season. No snow but still chilly. Nothing was open but the main gate but we still enjoyed stopping and hiking up to the views. It's so classically Maine!

We took our dog up - - didn't see any signs saying they are prohibited. Please note though that space is at a premium up there so don't take you pooch if there are many people around.
