“Beautiful lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Pemaquid point lighthouse was somewhat crowded, even on a weekday, but it was well worth the drive and the $2 entry fee. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse, but I wouldn't recommend it for those who are very tall, have broad shoulders or are uncomfortable in tight spaces. If the tide is going out and the weather is good, ramble around on the rocks below the lighthouse. There are tide pools and the rocks themselves are interesting. They also have a museum in the lightkeeper's house. .

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Beautiful park. Climb the lighthouse it is well worthit. Ultimate maine experience. View is just like the postcards. All the volunteers are locals snd were very freindly gave us great tips on where the locals eat. That alone was worth the two dollar entry fee.

“A lovely spot to spend a few hours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We have always loved Maine and this spot is one of the loveliest! The air is always fresh and clean, there are brisk sea breezes, the lighthouse is pristine and the grounds are clean and there are dramatic big rocks with crashing waves.....which just epitomizes the Maine seacoast! You can bring a picnic lunch and eat on the grounds or have a meal in the charming restaurant next door. This classic Maine lighthouse is a gem on the Pemaquid Peninsula!

“If you want to see the lighthouse on the Maine quarter, then this is it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Spending $2 for parking may be the money spent on the whole vacation. If you want to see the lighthouse on the Maine quarter, then this is it. Don’t pass it up! The little museum is nice and the volunteer staff is knowledgeable and committed.
