Aside from what seems to be rather a rather overly aggressive attempt to raise money from "donations" - $5 for parking plus $5 each for entry plus $1 for a bottle of water - this is a very interesting place to visit with knowledgeable volunteers,...More
Understandable that it's not open often because they use volunteers. However, the grounds are beautiful, and people should be able to visit when the lighthouse is closed. No other place to park, because parking in the street results in a ticket even if you park...More

Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately the parking is not managed by the lighthouse but the Southold Park District. We will share this note with them.
