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)

First visit to the Bodie Island Lighthouse. Loved it. The staff we interacted with were very friendly. The star of the show was beautiful under sunny skies. Unable to climb as was closed for season. The history of the light house was prominently displayed on...More
I remember visiting Bodie Island about fifteen years ago on a windy, cold April day - ran up, took a photo, left. I didn't remember it being one of my favorite lighthouses.

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.
