Choptank River Lighthouse, Cambridge

4.6
Completed in 2012, this is a replica of the Choptank River Lighthouse that guided ships in the Choptank River until 1964, when it was dismantled by the U.S. Coast Guard. It served as an unforgettable icon to many—for generations of watermen, for visitors who came by steamboat, for sailors in regattas.

Today the replica has become a new icon for the city of Cambridge and all of Dorchester County, Maryland.

  • I had never seen a round lighthouse. They tend to be in rivers and bays as they don't have the ocean waves to contend with. We enjoyed the visit  more »
  • Was such a nice place to visit. Beautiful view of the water. I would come here again next time and bring a picnic to enjoy while we sit on the dock.  more »

  • The views are breathtaking. Prepare to take pics, but it's really hard to capture the natural beauty digitally. Historical info was worth reading. I'd like to see a sunset from there.
  • My hometown ♥️ . I always drive to Longwharf for old times sake when I'm home. It's beautiful & the lighthouse ( added since I've moved away) is breath taking. Cambridge = Hometown proud ♥️
