“Very scenic little spot”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We couldn't get across to look at the lighthouse because of high tide moving in, but we took plenty of photos from the beach and surrounding areas. A very pretty little stop to take a pic. The nearby memorial to those lost on the wreck of the Brother Jonathon in the 19th century is also worth a look.

“Great site!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

After you park in the paved parking lot, there is a walkway down to the ocean. If the tide is out, you can walk all the way up to see the lighthouse. It is a fun walk and great view. If the tide starts coming back in as you walk above at the lighthouse, you will get wet as you proceed back to your car! The Battery Point Lighthouse is a beautiful must see attraction when in Crescent City.

Actually hit there at low tide this year and got to go out on the island. Love this place, historic, beautiful and a national treasure.
