We were staying in the area so decided to check this place out. We only took a short hike up to the lighthouse, but the scenery was well worth the trip.

This is a large park with lots to do. There are scenic overlooks, camp sites, historic sights. One thing that it doesn't have is any access for wheelchairs or mobility challenged folks.
