A cool lighthouse right on the side of the road so easy access. Not very crowded but this is January so might be busier in the summer.

92 steps to top, and they went by much more quickly and with less effort than I anticipated. Final climb is a short ladder into the top (depicted in the picture I uploaded with my little girl just coming up into the top). Lovely views. Friendly staff in gift shop and at base of lighthouse. Interesting history, including the 2005... More

Disappointed they moved the lighthouse from Little St Geo. The island has certainly taken a turn for the worse. What people won't do for money...

The view of St. George Island from the top of the lighthouse is worth the $5 charge and the climb up nearly 100 steps.

Parking right next to lighthouse. Costs $5/person to go to the top of the lighthouse (children 6 & under are free i think), not too hard a climb. At the top is a ladder that goes through a fairly small opening into the top of the lighthouse. If you're claustrophobic I don't think it'd be an ideal activity for you,... More

You can park just a few feet away from this lighthouse. Although we didn't have the time, you can climb up into the top of it. Some members of our group had done this before and said it was a great 360 degree view of the gulf, bay and island. There is a great restaurant a few feet in the... More

We stopped to take Pictures of the light house. It is located in a park with access to the beach and good parking. The keepers house was closed so we did not tour inside.
