Two of our party wanted to take photos of this lighthouse, but we did not want to spend big bucks to go on a cruise-sponsored tour bus. So we hired a cab to take us there, give us 10 minutes to take pictures, and bring us back. (Also made a quick drugstore stop on the way). Cab fare: we were quoted $75 for 3 people for 1 hour tour. We actually came back early and he charged us only $50. Gave him $50 + $25 cash tip.

We visited this site on a warm and sunny Sept. 11 as part of our historic Light house tour. There was a naval ship passing by in the distance which gave a special feeling to the already collective peaceful mood. It was very busy with motoring tourists, bus tours and cyclists. Outdoor washrooms are provided. A gift shop is available. We took excellent photos from many viewpoints. Food trucks were stationed nearby. It was just as pretty as depicted in professional photographs.

This is a must-see if you are in the Portland area. Great spot for Maine photos! Bring a picnic and take a walk. There is a gift shop and museum as well.

Visited 9-16-19. There are excellent photo opportunities at this location. You can walk around the lighthouse but not go in. On this day and time of my visit the fog horn was going off which added to the overall experience.
