We went there earlier today in the afternoon. Not that many people there so it was nice and quiet. Walking across the rocks to the lighthouse might not be for everyone, especially those who have trouble walking, but it is a nice place to visit anyway. Beautiful lighthouse.

You got a little wall of Fort to explore and photograph, and then a relatively easy walk on giant granite blocks out to this lighthouse. It's adjacent to the college campus so there is potential for other entertainment right in the area.

The coast of Maine is littered w/lighthouses, this one is out on a jetty built in the 1910s, if you are sure footed you can walk out and take in the Casco Bay views from in front of the lighthouse. Did it many times when I was younger but haven't been all the way out for a long time now.... More

The lighthouse is awesome. The stone way to it and around was nice. Nice place to sit and relax for hours.

We took the little tour for the lighthouse museum. It was very helpful to see its history. The cost was $2 and well worth the walk around the small building. Talking with the women who was there to run they little lighthouse was very interesting and knowledgeable. She also gave us some tips on where to have lunch and that... More

In addition to the rocky ledge that provides access to the outside of the Lighthouse, I saw people wading in the water near it. As well, there is a grassy area on which to relax and also a wide fort to explore.

This lighthouse is one of the prettiest and most accessible on the Maine Coast. There's a parking lot about 100 yards from the breakwater. Walk out and you feel like you are in the middle of Casco Bay, which you are. Lobster boats, cruise ships and ferries sail by with regularity. Enjoy it!

Another gorgeous place for a view of Portland and Casco Bay! Walking to the lighthouse over these huge rocks is fun and the view on your way spectacular. The lighthouse is open most weekends in the summer, weather dependent. This is a must see if you are in the area!

We took an early evening walk on the rock wall and around the lighthouse, lots of fisherman and families. Great view of Portland and the Cape Elizabeth lighthouse. Always a nice breeze, you might need a jacket
