“Barnegat Light,"Heaven on earth".”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I am lucky enough to live here. It's that small town you always read about with ocean on one side and the bay on the other. A beautiful fishing village with a lot of charm. Bedandbreakfast,motels , private homes to rent. 30 blocks long and about 3/4 mile wide. A barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean. About 45 minutes north of Atlantic City, N.J

“Great sightseeing attraction”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

simply said a MUST when visiting LBI, the walk up the 217 stairs was winding but the views breathtaking and loved the wind blowing. the park has a great board walk, Once again the people working were like so many I experienced in LBI not friendly. The gentleman at the door was gruff and impatient as was the lady. My wife who never has an ill word described the people on LBI as indifferent.

“A visit to Old Barney & Walking the Jetty Always Great”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

You can challenge yourself for $2.00 and climb the 217 stairs of the lighthouse, then walk off the burn in your legs with the 1 plus mile walk out on the jetty. Great fishing, and boat watching through the inlet. The bar is great to visit anytime of the year.

“Breath taking views and Maritime Forest Trail”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Been to Barnegat Lighthouse State Park numerous times since it's so pretty there.There's short self-guided trail through a typical Maritime Forest,which is one of my favorite trails in Jersey.If you appreciate the landscape of such an area,I suggest taking the trail.I walked to the top of the lighthouse(Old Barney),where there was a great view,but it didn't compare to the trail,but then again that's my opinion.

“Historical Lighthouse”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We enjoyed climbing to the top of this lighthouse and getting to walk around the outer ledge. We found great treasures shopping at Andy's!
