This lighthouse and the overall view is beautiful! It was so relaxing to sit on the rocks and watch the gentle waves roll in, admire the coastal views, and overall atmosphere. The park is small so there may be a lot of people crammed into a small space. There is limited free parking available. There is a small gift shop... More

We drove there for the light house but the road along the York, Maine shore is picturesque as well. A real beach town though not as many bikinis as we see in California.

Nice views of lighthouse and surrounding cape. Parking is limited so you may have to drive around a few times, but be patient since the views are worth it. You can scramble around the rocky ledges if you wish to get the best pictures.

Beautiful and historic. Definitely go see this wonderful place. There is a nice, clean gift shop building with lots of nice stuff, and a friendly local artist who customizes prints of his paintings which benefits the light house upkeep. Super pretty place.

The lighthouse is a short drive off of the interstate. Good size parking lot. a geocache hidden here, and great view of lighthouse, ocean and coast. Lighthouse is on a small island very close to the shore.

Set on a bluff it provides breathtaking photo ops and it is an easy place to see if of Maine's majestic lighthouses. There is a visitors center and an ice cream stand with unbelievable Maine blueberry ice... More

This was a beautiful stop on our trip to the Yorks and Kennebunk areas. You must follow a long winding road which ends at the lighthouse where there is a parking lot, so you are right there! Step outside your car-we went on a very hot/humid day and the air out here is fresh and brisk and we never felt... More
