I used to ride my bike here and picnic on the rocks around the lighthouse. The lighthouse has been fenced off for years now, so you can only see it from the dead end road - no direct accessibility. Disappointing.

Taken grandchildren to all lighthouses in Rhode Island and Warwick Neck was definitely on our list. Located in a lovely neighborhood, surrounded by chain link fence which prohibits access but beautiful nonetheless.

Niice place to bring a picnic basket and soak up the sun and catch the sea breeze and the smell of the ocean. Watch the motor and sail boats go by.

While this light is closed to the public and managed by the Coast Guard, you are still able to get a nice view and photo from the fence. If possible, the best view would be by boat. If you're a lighthouse enthusiast, it's worth a...More

If you wanted to see a Dept of Homeland Security sign, you came to the right place. You can see the lighthouse from the road, and that's about it. (We had more fun trolling Zillow to look at the properties in the area we can't...More

When open spectacular views and vistas of Narragansett Bay worth trip to the end of Warwick Neck. Coast Guard has occasional open house. Recommend waiting till those days. Suggest checking their website for access dates.

Not a big Lighthouse fan but this is one that needs to be visited. The lighthouse history is good and when they had to move the whole thing back from the bluffs is a really impressive story. It is a nice little Island to visit.

Worth the drive, but don't expect to get to close. We did see someone in a fishing boat on the waterside of the Lighthouse.
