Nice little park with really secluded picnic tables with grills! Has a small beach where you can grab some nice looking rocks. Really pretty flowers this time of year! Can't tour the lighthouse but it is neat to look at.

My wife and I visited here on our trip to New England. This was located in a state park and it was not crowded at all! It was a great find and awesome views of the lighthouse. We didn't stay very long, but the short...More

It is hard to see when you are in the parking lot, but way better view and much better pictures when you are along the beach or get higher in the grass when you get more perspective in the park.

The light house was average. The fort and beautiful pathways surrounding it made the trip worth while. It turned out to be a great place for lunch and a nature walk with an added touch of history. Great for all ages.

We spent a few minutes at the lighthouse and a few hours at the park scrambling over rocks looking in tide pools, walking the pier and trails, reading about the fort. It's a great little park.

My husband & I stopped by to see the lighthouse. It's pretty but I've seen better..you can't get too close to it because it's a private residence

In reading some of the reviews, do not understand how you cannot revel in the history of them. How do you suggest to not visit them. Men and woman spent there lives in some of these and saved so many lives. I thought this was...More

I was just there today, yes but it's difficult to climb over the rocks. Got down to the pier area. My kids loved seeing the tide pools and there was barely a soul in sight.
