“Good sightseeing stop”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Great place to learn some local history and if you can goto the top of the light house. Easy to access off of Hwy 98 and even has a play ground for the little ones. Personal tour of the keeper house is a great touch.

“Very different type of lighthouse”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

There was some interesting historical information available inside the museum. Be aware that the museum doesn't open until noon, and the lighthouse is only open to go inside on Saturday and Sunday and it carries a fee.

“Perfect pit stop for kids, but restrooms aren't always open”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

The lighthouse is neat, but not as cool as the big wooden play ship behind it. Our kids (7 & 5) loved it. Good picnic area. Two negatives: restrooms are only open when the gift shop is (weekend afternoons), and there were quite a few large wood boring bees flying around.

“Climbed to the top”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This lighthouse is open weekend for you to climb to the top. Small museum and gift shop. Volunteers were very friendly and informative. A replica pirate ship is also on the grounds for kids.

“Unique”

We had never seen a lighthouse construced like this one before. My wife couldn't stop taking pictures. Playground pirate ship looked to be special fun for kids.
