Excited to see this lighthouse
Jul 2019
I was so excited to see the Navesink Light Station from Ocean Avenue as we drove to/from Sandy Hook. There is free parking right outside the lighthouse entrance. We were able to climb up the north tower. We could see Sandy Hook from the top. The lighthouse has a museum and a gift shop in the main building. There's a rotating fresnel lens in a separate building.

Hard to believe that this twin lighthouse was built without the help of modern machinery. It stands on the highest point on the Atlantic coast and you can see forever.

Great Historic Lighthouses

We are lighthouse nuts. This one is special because of the twin towers. The staff was friendly and informative. Seeing the Fresnel lens up close was great.

A great place to stop for an hour or two

This is not an all day nor even a half day destination, but definitely worth the time to visit. Not only rich in history, the view of the NY skyline is breathtaking. The walk up the north tower is not long, but is very narrow.

It is worth the trip up a narrow windy hill!

So this site has commanding views of the Atlantic seaboard and New York city, which are even better at the top of the lighthouse (which is accessible by a narrow circular iron staircase inside the lighthouse)! Check it out! ALl they ask is that you leave a modest donation!

Neat Spot to Visit!
May 2019 • Couples
We took a day trip down to visit this and the Sandy Hook Lighthouse. I had never seen a dual lighthouse or twin light before so it was a neat piece of history. Only a short walk up to the top of one of the towers and then a wonderful 360 degree walk around with great views. They have a small gift shop and a museum with some interesting reading. They also have a lens that you can see up close to see the refraction, etc. Totally free (donations welcome to offset maintenance.) Would definitely visit again!

We didn't research enough prior to going. It was closed on the Tuesday we visited, but still able to walk the grounds and see the light display area.

Nice but opressive inside
Apr 2019 • Family
We enjoyed the outside of the facility BUT could not breathe inside even though it was only April. It was a cool day but the interior was so hot that we had to leave before completing the tour.
