  • Beautiful views. The rock traversing the whole way out to the lighthouse was the limiting factor here. Could not take our pre-schooler out there, so we walked around the fort area while one of us...

  • Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is located along a breakwater on Community College Campus. Definitely worth visiting. The lighthouse is deceptive, as it is huge and you can get up close. Too bad you can not walk up. Worth checking out if your coming to Maine to visit lighthouses. I would recommend visiting👍🏻
  • Finding parking might be challenging when the community college is in session. Other than that, it’s a nice area to walk & explore. We found this place by accident & end up liking it the most. The fun walking (or some jumping for teenagers) between the rocks to the light house was awesome.
