Chatham Lighthouse Parking

Do you need to get some kind of parking permit at the Chatham lighthouse? We wanted to see the light shouse and surrounding beach area. If so, where do I get it.

There is a parking lot across the street from the lighthouse. You don't need a permit (none available), but you can't park in the overlook parking lot for more than 30 minutes. Police will surely ticket your car.

If you drive around the corner to Bridge St. you can park along the road (after the "no Parking" signs stop) and walk back to the Lighthouse and Lighthouse Beach.

CapeMermaid, a frequent poster, recently posted information about a shuttle service from the Eldredge Garage on Main St. in Chatham. You might do a search here for "shuttle information to Chatham Lighthouse" for more information. The shuttle service sign has been there forever in front of this "antique" garage in season. I've never seen anyone take adavantage of it...but they should!

In addition to the information above, I believe that you can park for more than 30 minutes at Lighthouse Beach before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m..
