It's a fine place to visit if you are in Cape May...I really enjoyed seeing the sunken WWII destroyer SS Atlantus more.

“the lighthouse at Cape May”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

wonderful park with lots of trails, a museum, a variety of habitats and lots of birders wandering around. Shop needs more variety of sizes in t - shirts. wonderful weather in Sept. but the northwest wind was lacking so birds weren't flying much.

“Lovely historical and environmental treat!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Great place to visit and climb. Great restoration. When you climb to the top, the views are awesome. A State Park surrounds the lovely lighthouse. Super time walking the trails or walking the beach.

“Can't go Wrong”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The history and view from the lighthouse is fantastic. The lighthouse historians have so much information about this site that you will leave knowing more about this lighthouse than when you started.
