Currently under construction (Sept 2018). Can’t visit it. But the park and views of the ocean are breath taking! Worth a stop to see a Maine lighthouse.

Take your family and learn about local history in a beautiful location. You'll have to deal with limited parking, but the wait is worth it. Ruggedness of the ocean surrounding the lighthouse will spark your imagination of days past when sailors relied on the keeper...More

So looking forward to seeing this. The lighthouse itself was covered in a shrowd. Looking at reviews it looks like I missed it by a day. Beautiful setting, can't wait to get back and see it.

This is a picture perfect location. Benches to sit on and plenty of rocks to just sit and enjoy the view of the ocean and the lighthouse.Very calm place. Watch the sun rise from this location and you will be amazed at Gods wonderful works.

Right now the lighthouse is being refurbished and is covered in scaffolding, so you can't really see It, HOWEVER that doesn't make a visit up to the point a waste at all. It's still a beautiful, peaceful park and worth the trip. We went there...More

Yes, the scaffolding is still up but it only covers a portion of the site. It’s still worth visiting, but if you like taking lighthouse pictures more artistic than snapshots, then it may not be the best time to visit.
