We just went by and decided to go back and take a few pictures. Realized that there were people up in the lighthouse, and so inquired. Hubby does not enjoy heights, but I like views from lighthouses, so he passed on it, and I went...More

The tower is open only certain days, at a minimal cost. Check the days should you wish to climb to the top. There are some picnic tables and children's play equipment.

We enjoyed climbing the Crooked River Lighthouse in Carrabelle, Florida. The history is fascinating and the climb in the enclosed "tubular" center structure was different than any lighthouse climb we've done in the past. It was hard to imagine a lighthouse keeper lugging jugs of...More

Didn't even know this was in the area; just went for a walk and found it. There are roadside signs, but not attention getters by a long stretch. Great little museum of sorts at the site with interesting displays and artifacts.

The Crooked River Lighthouse museum is very interesting. We enjoyed reading about the history of the lighthouse. We also enjoyed climbing the stairs to the top. The view is not to be missed!

The Crooked River Lighthouse,1 of 4 lighthouses on the Panhandle Lighthouse tour, was our 2nd lighthouse tour. While the climb to the top ($5) yielded spectacular views, we found the museum/gift shop to be much more interesting. The curators did a great job depicting the...More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon, and climbed to the top. Great views of the surrounding area. I highly recommend stopping at this lighthouse if you're in the area. It does not sit directly on the water, so it is easy to miss, but worth...More

This lighthouse is tucked away in the forest in Carrabelle, FL. and is a gem! They only get $ 5.00 to climb the lighthouse. It winds you around and around until you reach the observation deck which gives you a wonderful view of the surrounding...More

We really appreciate the new view. The removal of the pine trees and brush lets you see the lighthouse from US-98. It will be even better as they continue updating the landscaping.
