  • Gates open at 11am, however, the lighthouse itself opens at 11:30am. Very informative volunteers who had an answer to all our questions. Spent about an hour, beautiful views!  more »
  • I have visited the lighthouse on several occasions with friends, family as well as alone. It never ceases to amaze me and the view of the sound is breathtaking. So much history to be learned. A...  more »

  • Lovely lighthouse on the North Fork with some grounds and tables to stay and picnic if you like otherwise your visit won't take too long. The 67 steps beach is right next to the lighthouse which you can also visit while here to add some time to your trip. Parking for the lighthouse is $5 and the lot is rather small. Do not park on the road - you will likely get a ticket. The tour of the lighthouse is $5 with access to the tower. There are some nice views of the Long Island Sound and also a small nature trail. The trail is rather muddy and had poison ivy growing out into the path so beware and wear proper shoes if you decide to do the trail. You get some more views of the Sound on the trail and I saw some deer during the quick loop the trail takes you on. All in all a nice little stop to take during a trip to the North Fork
  • Had a great time here. Wish we could have stayed longer, and climbed the lighthouse. We will have to go back and do it again. Lovely views and friendly staff. Much shorter than the fire island lighthouse, but looks interesting. Hope to get back to visit again.
