Egg Rock Light is a lighthouse on Frenchman Bay, Maine. Built in 1875, it is one of coastal Maine's architecturally unique lighthouses, with a square tower projecting through the square keeper's house.

The light was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Egg Rock Light Station in 1988.

  • This was one of the lighthouses on the lighthouse tour. We only saw it from the water but very nice boat trip and the guide provided good information.  more »
  • We took a boat tour of coastal creatures and it was outstanding! Acadian Boat Tours is affordable and informative. The lighthouse was one of many features that day.  more »
