  • What a cool place, we would love to come back and stay longer than one night. We enjoyed the hike to the lighthouse. Walking on the jetty. Beautiful place. Clean bathrooms.

  • Unlike it's name, this is a beautiful place to visit. We spent 5 days here camping, hiked to the lighthouses and strolled along the beaches. Beaches were nice and clean, since it was October it wasn't crazy busy, though the park was pretty full. You may not get cell service in parts of the park, but the quiet and views are so nice that you don't miss being connected. I would definitely recommend visiting if you haven't. If you have an RV you won't be able to park close to where the lighthouses are located.
  • Great day trip! Drove to the coast while waiting for a wedding. Beautiful walk,15 minutes through the forest; small but pretty water ocean inlet to see along the wall up to the lighthouse. As expected great views of the rocky coast, watching ships come in and out of the ocean up the river. 5minute walk up to the interactive center. $10 for the visit. Bring mosquito repellent.
