Rock Island Lighthouse is thus far my favorite little lighthouse in the Thousand Islands. The park service did a wonderful job restoring the main building as well as the lighthouse. A trip up to the top of the lighthouse is a must... the 360 degree views are wonderful!

This was a great way to spend an hour. I do recommend that the glass at the top of the lighthouse could be cleaned more often. But a great little way to relax and be right along the water.

We arrived by kayak and spent some time checking out the island. We also had a picnic on the grounds. We did not have time to tour the museum.

While on one of the tours, we stopped here to check the lighthouse out. We had lunch with us, so we were able to sit at one of the variety of picnic tables and take in the scenery as we had an hour to spend on the island.

Our trip to this lighthouse was fun and informative. We enjoyed the boat tour around the islands on the way to the lighthouse. We climbed the steps to the top of the lighthouse, even though I have an intense fear of heights! Going up was ok and the view was amazing but going back down was the scary part for me! Wow were my legs shaking! But, I would do it again should we ever decide to take the tour in the future. Highly recommend.
