An interesting and still important lighthouse that can be visited but not climbed. (NOTE: The lighthouse is currently under construction, and is expected to re-open in summer 2013, with the ability to be climbed for the first time)
Hours Today: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

All reviews light house the outer banks cape hatteras marsh area nice boardwalk park ranger gift shop wooden walkway observation deck nice stop worth the climb worth a stop walk up off season take pictures great pictures plenty of parking
Once I drove to the southern end of Nags Head, I found this location. As the gov't had been closed since December 2018, there were not many places open. The lighthouse was also closed but nice to visit the grounds.
Beautidul old light house to visit in the area. Has a dock that you can walk out on and take great pictures. Stay on the path though, there are snakes in the summer time. There is a small gift shop inside.
Lovely lighthouse to visit! It was closed, as we visited on Dec 27th, but still worth seeing...taking pictures...walking around the property and out onto the boardwalk overlooking the natural area. We enjoyed a spontaneous game of frisbee with all of our adult children out on...More
My wife and I visited during the off season. The lighthouse was closed to visitors and as such we couldn't climb, but the museum was open as well as the visitor center. We also walked to the overlook and got some great views of the...More
I hated to give less than a 5 to a National Park property, but staffing is limited at Bodie Island Lighthouse during the off season. It's a beautiful property, but the lighthouse is not open because they have few Rangers available. The boardwalk out into...More

Check with the National Parks Service. It is still worth seeing, and my husband and I were there when it wasn't open. The grounds are magnificent and there's a boardwalk that leads to a marsh with stunning views of the water and lighthouse. The gift shop is open as well. If you can get on one of their full moon tours (once monthly) that would be a great experience.
Does anyone know when the repairs/renovations are expected to be complete? I want to make a trip to OBX after it's done.

Repairs were supposed to be completed this month but I do not see anywhere that they are done. 252-473-2111 ext 148 is the number listed for upodates by the Public Affairs Office.
Few last minute questions before this weekend! (4 Replies)
I cannot really find detailed directions or an address for the lighthouses. My question is if we are driving from Kill Devil Hills toweards Cape Hatteras, will we be able to see where to go to see Bodie Island Lighthouse and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. (IE are there signs and things like that to point it out) My other question is, we want to take the Hatteras Ferry to Ocracoke and once we get there we would like to see the Ocracoke Lighthouse and just wonder around the town for a few...More

It's no problem seeing bodie lighthouse from the road. Also Hatteras lighthouse. I'm sure you know Hatteras was moved back from it's original site. Both are easy to find. Remember, the outter banks are not very wide. The Ocracoke lighthouse is the smallest and the hardest to see. But still easy to find. When I left the ferry on the other side of the island going to Morehead City it was in plain site. Owens Resturant in Nags Head is a good choice but get there early... The Lone Cedar is on...More

Room for RV parking? (1 Reply)
We would like to stop by the Bodie Island Lighthouse, Jockey’s Ridge, and the Wright Brothers memorial as we are leaving the OBX. Are these parking lots big enough to be able to get in and out with a 5 th wheel camper? Thanks in advance.

the parking lots at all three places you mention do have lots of room and you should not have a problem parking. fyi, the visitor center building at the Wright Memorial is closed for renovation. you can visit all the outdoor exhibits, and check the website for ranger talks. at Bodie Island, the rangers give talks on the back porch of the keepers house. you can go the the bottom of the lighthouse for free, there is a charge to climb. Have fun!
