Owner description: An interesting and still important lighthouse that can be visited but not climbed. (NOTE: The lighthouse is currently under construction, and is expected to re-open in summer 2013, with the ability to be climbed for the first time)

Bodie island lighthouse was the first lighthouse I've ever visited. It didn't seem like the tour itself was worth paying for. You can learn plenty inside the visitor's center and can take tons of pictures. Make sure to follow the trail to the overlook on the sound. There's lots of wildlife and a great opportunity for photos.

This is definitely worth the drive to see. I love seeing lighthouses and while staying on the Outer Banks it makes for a perfect day trip to see Hatteras and Bodie in the same day. I snapped some beautiful pictures of this lighthouse and it just has a simple elegance that makes it very photogenic. The grounds were nice and so were the rangers on site to answer any questions about the lighthouse. Was definitely worth going to see!

Bodie Island Lighthouse was very cool. The lighthouse is very well kept. The grounds are very nice and include a boardwalk to view wildlife.

It was my favorite as far as the beauty and surroundings. Very photogenic. This made five lighthouses we saw on this trip.

We have been to the Outer Banks for many years, and always try to drive down to Bodie Lighthouse. Even tho we've seen it a lot of times, it is a beautiful spot for photos and is kept perfectly painted and is a working lighthouse. There is a small house there with information and a ranger on duty. During off hours, it is a nice quiet spot to enjoy a bit of a walk out to a dock or to watch the birds. It is less than 10 miles from Nags Head and quite a nice drive down the beach road part of the way.
