This is a beautiful lighthouse. Because of the way it juts out to the ocean, it was beautiful to look at on that bright sunny afternoon. There were not many cars around as it is a long drive but it is worth it. You get good views of it from the side and you can walk up very close to... More

We visited the lighthouse and museum in mid September. The lighthouse is a good location for pictures of the surrounding area. The museum volunteers were very knowledgeable of the area's and light house history and it was enjoyable to view some of tools for fishing and rock mining of the past. From what I understand ,the museum itself was the... More

Walk out on ramp to lighthouse, as well on rocky beach around lighthouse, and you'll appreciate the massive, supportive bulwarks on land that make the Marshall Point Lighthouse a beauty to behold from both vantage points. You can also visit the museum in the 1875 Keeper's House, with well-done history of area and lighthouse (variety of items in gift shop,... More

Very pretty lighthouse that is easy to get to. It was quiet at sunrise except for a fellow photographer and lobster boats leaving the river. Very peaceful.

Staying in Rockland and took a side trip to Marshall Point lighthouse (Forrest Gump movie) and got great photos. You can picnic out there and enjoy the small and informative displays.

My year residence is not to far from from the lighthouse buit even though it is reasonably close I still enjoy viewing the scenery that I have seen for so many years. The coast of Maine on a pleasant summers morning is about as perfect as it gets. The view from the rocks near the lighthouse that includes the island... More
