It's tough to give Bodie a good or bad review due to the parks closures steaming from Covid. The grounds are open as is the gift shop but access to the other rooms in the gift shop building and the actual light house is unavailable. It's still a beautiful, picturesque location and there are still alot of visitors walking the grounds and stopping in to take in the wonder of the lighthouse. We will definitely be back when things open back up.

Another beautiful stop along the Outer Banks is Bodie Lighthouse. Plays second fiddle to Hatteras Lighthouse, but no less enjoyable and worth a stop. Don't miss it when in the Outer Banks /Nags Head area.

Finally made it to see this beautiful black and white lighthouse on Bodie Island. As the saying goes, the third time is the charm. It took three times to build the lighthouse we see today. The first time because of faulty destruction, the second time destroyed during the Civil War and finally the third time a face lift was completed in 2013. The lighthouse grounds as well as the boardwalk trail over a salt marsh are available to walk around and take photos. When we arrived, a woman was on the porch of the Visitor Center located in what was once the lightkeeper’s home. When I tried to go inside, the doors were locked. Bodie and Currituck are considered “sisters” because they are structurally the same except for color.

We visited here while in the area. Very much worth your time if you like light houses. All the park rangers were very nice and helpful. Make sure to walk out the board walk to the end. Along the board walk we saw several blue crabs in the water. A lot of history here
