  • This place is amazing. It's free minus parking which is only $2hr or if remember correctly $15 for the season. Ample areas to walk. Well groomed grounds. Beach, lighthouse, old buildings and history. It is simply beautiful and a great place to spend a day or afternoon. Food trailers there during summer as well as port-o-potties.
  • This is a great place to see and take pictures. The rock formations are amazing and there are nice trails to be able to take in may different views of the lighthouse. You cannot go into the lighthouse, but parking is cheap. Only $2 per hour with a 2 hour minimum. There is also a separate parking lot, away from the lighthouse, by a small beach area that you can swim in the water if you like. Paid parking in the one lot should allow you to move you car to the other since it is in the same park and you put a validated receipt on your dash that is time stamped when your paid parking expires.
