This place is on my list of the best places that I have ever visited. It is a must see if you are visiting mid coast Maine. Do not miss it.

Marshall Point Light is tiny compared to Portland Head, or even Quoddy Point or our favorite, Pemaquid Point, but worth the long drive from US 1. The small museum both provides a history of the light, but gently lays out the connection of the light...More

Well-kept facility and grounds. Got there when the tide was out, and therefore had multiple vantage points for pictures. Nice day. Not too crowded. Museum/ gift store was full of interesting items. This is a must see location for "Forrest Gump" enthusiasts.

Just past Port Clyde, you can visit Marshall Point Lighthouse, which has been operating since 1833 and was made famous in the movie Forrest Gump. Most of the year, the lighthouse is closed to the public, but we were lucky enough to visit on one...More

Love this lighthouse! Small but beautiful views - great place to sit and watch the ocean or bring a light picnic lunch. There is a gorgeous fisherman's memorial there.

Such a beautiful location. Worth to drive and has a great place for a picnic lunch. Please go slow on the road, it is very narrow and doesn’t allow much room when there are pedestrians. Parking can also be a challenge.

lovely little light house. We got there just before dusk, so we didn't have a ton of time. it's a beautiful spot to take photos. Would love to have spent more time, but it really is a wonderful spot.

Robert, interpreter in the museum, was wonderful. He knew his stuff--I could have spent hours exploring.

Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor make a fabulous off the beaten path adventure. In this area, time stands still. Follow the road to the end of the peninsula and you will be rewarded with the small, but charming Marshall Point Light. Forrest Gump ran here...More

Blustery day with the waves running strongly into the shore makes this lighthouse more atmospheric and interesting. Quite chilly walking the shore and the seabirds wheeling and diving into the breakers add to the scene.
