We were here during off season so we were not able to go inside. The views are spectacular and worth the walk, bike ride, or moped ride to get here!

This lighthouse is very well kept - fog horn is operational. Nice views. Close to Mohegan Bluff. Great views of the ocean.

I wish it had a least limited off-season hours. That said, the surrounding parkland and the exterior building are striking. Even if the interior is closed, this is work a stop.

Really enjoyed this spot, beautiful spot to look out over the ocean, although the lighthouse itself was close due to renovations.

After going to the North Lighthouse, this was disappointing. Maybe it would have been better if it was open when we went. Not much to see from the grounds and made for a brief visit.

We hit fall weather just right and it was wonderful. Clear view to Montauk. Big lawn with a climbing rock and benches overlooking ~200° view of the ocean. Pairs easily with Mohegan Bluffs.
