“Perfect pit stop for kids, but restrooms aren't always open”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

The lighthouse is neat, but not as cool as the big wooden play ship behind it. Our kids (7 & 5) loved it. Good picnic area. Two negatives: restrooms are only open when the gift shop is (weekend afternoons), and there were quite a few large wood boring bees flying around.

“Climbed to the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

This lighthouse is open weekend for you to climb to the top. Small museum and gift shop. Volunteers were very friendly and informative. A replica pirate ship is also on the grounds for kids.

We had never seen a lighthouse construced like this one before. My wife couldn't stop taking pictures. Playground pirate ship looked to be special fun for kids.

“Crooked River Lighthouse - very nice museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

The Crooked River Lighthouse is just outside Carrabelle, FL. There is an excellent museum. Check days and hours of operation before you plan your trip. The staff was very helpful and there are a couple of different information videos to watch.

“Metal lighthouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

I had never been to a metal lighthouse and was looking forward to seeing it and possibly climbing it. The climb was not completed because it is only open 2 days of the week. Additionally, there was no way for ventilation in the lighthouse, and it was an extremely hot day. However, it was an awesome sight to see up close. There is a park area surrounding the lighthouse, but it appeared shabby. The grass needed to be mowed, and the markings to let one know where it was were poor; I drove past it twice. The keeper's house is interesting and the person at the desk knowledgeable. It is run by volunteers; perhaps they need more to get the place to be an exciting adventure.
