Owner description: An interesting and still important lighthouse that can be visited but not climbed. (NOTE: The lighthouse is currently under construction, and is expected to re-open in summer 2013, with the ability to be climbed for the first time)

“Nice drive out but was closed for construction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

It was a nice ride out, staff was only OK. The lighthouse was closed as it was being worked on. Probably would have been nice. Museum was so so. If you only go the see the lighthouse, make sure it's open and take an extra 10-15 minutes and continue south across the bridge. Now that's cool

“Under construction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Stopped by the lighthouse which is under repair. You are unable to see the lighthouse now, but construction should be completed next year. There is a lot of good information about the lighthouse available in the visitor center, so it is still worth a stop.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Stopped by while in the area. Lighthouse is still undergoing repairs. Hoping to go back once it is completed. I remember visiting the lighthouse about 35 years ago and going to the top, a lot of fun and looking forward to doing it again.

Didn't get to see much but the outside with the scaffolding. The renovation will be completed by December according to the National Park guide.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Very interesting lighthouse! It was under construction when we there, however we had a very informative and entertaining talk with one of the rangers. Can't wait until the construction is over.
