This park is apart of the the Echo Rangers program which is an educational program that focuses on the county’s ecological, cultural, heritage and outdoor resources. The program is offered at more than 50 sites including parks, museums, libraries and historical sites for children in grades 1-5th grade.

This program is great for children to see and learn about the different areas in the county and visit places they may not be able to afford to see otherwise.

I am very disappointing in this park because the echo rangers are supposed to be allowed into the park without having to pay the parking fee, however, the guard was not informed of this policy. The guard was rude and charged us the fee and there is no communication or follow through on the Lighthouse Point Park side of things, the marine science center, and the Echo rangers program.

Whom ever manages the Lighthouse Point Park does NOT do their job to make sure things are run correctly and something should be done about this especially when it affects our children.

An hour and a half from Orlando, this is a hidden gem, although there are many beaches along this coast, the one at this park is outstanding and all for $10. Huge stretch of white sand, with life guard, a concrete boardwalk that reaches out into the ocean. You can also walk along the park towards a very large sandy bay. This isn’t a huge park, but well maintained, with clean bathrooms, shelters with picnic benches and BBQ grills. We saw many birds, lizards, gopher tortoises and we were delighted to see dolphins. The lighthouse is not part of this park, it’s very close but you have to pay a separate fee to enter it.

I arrived at the park at 6am when it opened, to view the sunrise. This park is so beautiful, with lots of boardwalk, and a very long jetty, it is wheelchair/scooter friendly ! With access to the beach as well, and the majestic Ponce Inlet Lighthouse looms overhead in the backdrop. I do feel that the $10 entrance fee is a little much, given there are not any facilities except for a restroom. However, if you are handicap and have a sticker, you can get in for free.

Rode out to the Lighthouse for a meal and was pleasantly surprised at the overall atmosphere. Everyone had a great meal for a very reasonable price, staff was friendly and informed, and surroundings were very relaxing. Wildlife was everywhere and it was just a great place to enjoy a meal with friends.

Lighthouse Point Park is at the very end of Ponce Inlet. The park has beaches on the ocean and on the Halifax River. You can sunbathe, surf, fish, walk, picnic or just enjoy the view. There is a long pier into the inlet but currently, it is difficult to access because of storm damage. If you are agile, you can still climb onto it. There are many different places with water access. It also has a dog beach. There are some picnic tables(some covered)

first off - as a native to this area, i remember this place before it was a park that you had to pay to visit, i digress.

it's $10 for the day or $20 for year, so i opted for the year. oh boy, i was sooooo disappointed after parking and walking on the beautiful wooden path to the beach - it's a driving beach!!! yuck. ugh. horrible.

it's doubtful i'll go back.

What a great park for a fun time with your dog. Since Volusia Cty doesn't allow dog on the beaches this is a wonderful solution. Dogs are allowed on the riverside of the park and there is plenty of nice sandy beaches for the pets to play. So happy we found this place.

Spent the morning here geocaching in a light rain. Such a beautiful park! Love the boardwalk trails. Allows you to be in the dunes without destroying them. Highlight of the morning was running into a huge gopher turtle. Magnificent creature. This park has excellent facilities and leashed dogs are permitted. $10 per vehicle entrance fee and worth every penny. Highly recommended!

We decided to visit this attraction based on the recommendation of my niece who lives in Orlando and has visited the site previously. The admittance fee was very reasonable. The grounds were very well maintained and the exhibits were well kept up. I did not go all the way to the tp of the lighthouse due to my fear of heights, but my wife did and enjoyed the view.

Love seeing the lighthouse and surrounding structures. You can take a tour or just enjoy the gift shop. I have visited several times and I learn something new each time. Had the pleasure of meeting Nelley, the lighthouse cat!
