My granddaughters loved our time there. I climbed to the top. I was so proud of them. The gift shop was a great place to learn about the lighthouse and buy some mementos of our trip.

Cannot miss stopping here to visit whenever in Barnegat Light. Beautiful views. Having lunch at the picnic table with the lighthouse in the background makes the day special.

This park, on the upper end of the Long Beach Island, has something for everyone. The highlight itself is the majestic light house, which you can climb. There are great beaches, a museum, restrooms, areas for picnicking and fishing and places to observe bird life....More

Seeing the light at sunset is extra special with the seagulls, boats, and of course the light itself.

We go to the lighthouse several times each summer. It is beautifully kept and a stunning view to be seen. We enjoy going on the nights of the night climb, especially if there is a bonfire and music. The photos of the sunset are spectacular.

Sorry, I just saw your question, I would have to say I doubt it would be open as it is a state holiday. Though you can likely walk through the park.
