Not quite sure how to rate it.. Nothing wrong with it. The lighthouse has had on and off construction which makes the outside not clearly seen with all the scaffolding. It's never accessible to the public on the inside because of age, disrepair due to lack of funds. The grounds are lovely to walk through and there's boardwalks all around the lighthouse for viewing. At the right time of the day, it's beautiful to photograph against the sky. It's a perfect stop to or from Hatteras for a lighthouse tour of your stay.
