This lighthouse is at the end of the road in Rocky Harbour - easily accessible by a short walk from the parking lot.

Nicely restored and well done museum displays - but the best part was the knowledgeable park staff - enjoyed learning more about life here and in the area. Like everything in GMNP - a really scenic location and lots of hiking trails if you have the time.

Well maintained with short trails to the bluff and beach. Lighthouse closed in the off-season but still worth the visit. Even a path down to the old garden

See the way it all was years ago. It was comfortable living but happy people besides...Nothing like old fashioned Newfoundland shots of this place. I recommend going to see it

This quaint little lighthouse is very close to Rocky Harbour and a must see for visitors to the area! Enjoy an easy hike in the area, lots of parking, but if you really wanted a good walk, you can tackle it from Rocky Harbour.

We toured the Lighthouse in September. The staff were friendly and informative. The displays within the Lighthouse provided very interesting information about the history of the Lighthouse and Rocky Harbour. A must-see if you are in the area.

The lighthouse was one of the highlights of our two week drive around Newfoundland. My wife and I had some time in the afternoon of our first day in Rocky Harbor so we drove up to the lighthouse. Took a brief tour of the building and decided to explore the grounds...followed a trail through the woods and decided to turn... More
