  • It's calm and the breeze is refreshing along the shore. The lighthouse is a nice 10 minute attraction. Staff at the front gate seem to hate their job or in need of a new one; I overheard them passive aggressively talking about a visitor. I'm giving this five stars for the little park itself not for the attendants.
  • What more can be said that this beautiful lighthouse still stands from the late 1700's.. there is a neat path of rocks that wraps around the lighthouse.. gives the effect your in the ocean.. camp hero state park is next door with trails that overlook the lighthouse and ocean..bring your camera!
