“Brand new State Park”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

This is one of the things that the state of New York did right. They made it a state park, and actually put money into it by adding a lot of upgrades. There is a brand new dock, a gift shop, bathrooms, and picnic tables. It is a great place for a picnic, if you have a boat. There is a good view of the Thousand Island bridge, and a good place to view the freighters going by.

“Lighthouse #198”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We love seeing lighthouses and were able to tour this lighthouse as part of the Clayton Island Tours. We were able to tour the light and the keepers house. The guides were interesting and friendly. After years of being closed for touring, this sight just reopened in 2013. Loved it!

“Nice stop”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We spent a pleasant hour here as a stop over on a boat tour. We were able to climb to the top of the lighthouse and got a beautiful view as a result. There isn't much to the museum or gift shop but the small grounds are beautiful and well kept and there are areas available for a picnic lunch. The clean, modern restrooms were a welcome sight.
