This is a beautifully restored lighthouse. 217 steps to the top and worth it with wonderful views. It was free and I would have gladly paid to go in. The park is great too looking out at the Atlantic to the north of LBI. Take a walk on the jetty and you will not be disappointed. Great opportunity to enjoy some lighthouse history.

I grew up in PA and vacationed in West Creek,NJ since I was a child. Every summer we made many trips to the lighthouse - best memories of my childhood!! Now I have kids, live in MA but every summer go "home" to NJ! We always visit "Old Barney" and walk the jetty....it is a tradition that my family loves and looks forward to every summer. The sunsets are amazing, pack your camera you wouldn't want to miss it!

If you like sunsets, you will love Barnegat Lighthouse State Park. It is so beautiful here. Take the 217 steps to the top of the lighthouse and enjoy an amazing panorama of the real Jersey Shore. Watch the fishing fleet head out to the ocean, get an ice cream cone at Kelley's or picnic at the park. This picturesque setting is amazing and they also have full moon bonfires from April until October.

This is a very nice park. The view from the lighthouse is excellent and well worth climbing a few stairs. After going up the lighthouse, we also walked out on the pier and then the rocks to look at the water and surrounding areas. It is a very nice and pleasant way to spend a couple hours. Certainly not a full day event, but well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Bright,warm sun. Westerly breeze. A touch of Fall nip in the air. Stopped by "Ole Barney" and then walked the jetty out to the end, fishing rod in hand. Flippin a Hopkins bucktail and got a few small Weakfish. No keepers, just fun! A "busmans" holiday.
