Large parking lot. Nice visitor center as well.Large walkway to view lighthouse and you and walk up it. We did not go inside but there were a lot of people that were going inside. The person in the visitor center was very nice, wish I could remember her name.

We have visited this lighthouse many times and it is beautiful. Although this last visit we couldn't climb to the top (they close for the winter season on Columbus Day) we have climbed it many other times. It is a long climb and is very hot in the summer months but it has a spectacular view and wel worth it!! The Park Rangers are always very friendly and very informative. The history of the area is very interesting. If you go to the Outer Banks be sure not to miss a view from the top of the Lighthouse.

If your in Cape Hatteras, this is truly a must see! If I was a whole lot younger, I would definitely be tempted to climb to the top because the view must be awe inspiring.

A beautiful sight and great history of the region. I never knew about the uboat threats in the area. I truly enjoyed the video about how the lighthouse was moved very impressive.
