It was obviously built recently to make money. We did not pay to take the tour. It stands just off the road in the middle of a campsite park. The drive we took to the dam down the road was worth it.

Our tour guide was top notch and was patient with my 80-year old mother who made it up and down! The gift shop had a good selection of things. I liked the uniqueness of a lighthouse in the middle of West Virginia.
