This is an easy to visit site for all ages, easy to walk and offers a lot of history information in on a small site. For those who can do it be sure to walk to the top of the lighthouse. Parking is close by.

We love visiting lighthouses and this one is exceptional. Beautiful view, the climb is not for the feint of heart. The grounds are immaculate with a lot of interesting information.

Clean, and nice stop along the way. The girl behind the counter at the gift shop was the only downside. She was a little crabby and more interested in talking with other men workers there. Other than that very nice

Having visited all the lighthouses in North Carolina, climbing the interior of this one was not a problem. Gorgeous view, and very safe. The site itself is extremely interesting, ranking right up there with the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse site in N. C., but even more...More

Nicely preserved lighthouse and outbuildings. I'm a historian and I've never seen such a nicely preserved collection of maritime buildings. Well done. Interpretation was good. Tower was fantastic as were the views from the top. Great afternoon. Gift shop was even well done.

This place is awesome. Great history and an amazing view! It's a must do in the area. Get ready for a hike to the top (wear your tennis shoes). Lots of fun.

Yes, no extra charges either. Upper and lower lots with room for every type of vehicle from motorcycles to buses.
Are kids allowed to go up the tower? Is there a height restriction? My kids are 3 and 8. Thank you!

It's 5 or 6 dollars to get to see the lighthouse and I actually think they are pet friendly and there is a dog beach at the inlet for pets also...
