Stopped by briefly during our visit to the area. The views from the top of the lighthouse are beautiful (although slightly vertigo inducing!). My children were allowed to take a free seashell from the main level - they added it to their collection of souvenirs...More

We didn’t get to see the inside of the light house because we went late trying to see the sunset from there. It’s not a good spot to see the sunset. However, it’s well kept. The lawn is moved nice and short. We saw a...More

This is wonderful little municipal park just off the highway. There is a lighthouse in excellent condition (cannot enter) and washrooms available (flush). The best part about the park is the great view of the five nearby islands in the Bay of Fundy. At the...More

Well,the lighthouse is the closed view and also has some explaination the islands. The provincial park has everything you need for camping. There are lots of restaurants in the area but are seasonal.

Been to a lot of lighthouses and this is probably the smallest. Tiny gift shop downstairs (no patches for sale :( ) But no fee to visit! HOWEVER, you are NOT going to get a better view of the 5 islands from anywhere but here....More

The reason I only gave 3 stars (should have been 5) is that the municipality needs to do a better job of checking and maintaining the washrooms. They were very dirty and looked like they had been like that for some time. This area, that...More

A small municipal picnic park overlooking the bay and the 5 islands, It is clean, well kept, easy to get to and free. You can climb the light house when it is open or walk the beach and tidal flats. Well worth the stop for...More

What more can I say? Proper flush toilets in very clean and modern facilities are a nice surprise. You can go into the lighthouse to get a better view. Lawn chairs allow you to sit and stay a while.

Excellent stop for a break. Nice ocean breezes, clamming and beautiful ocean side scenery. There are washrooms available and plenty of parking.

We enjoyed our visit here. My husband climbed to the top of the lighthouse for free. Very cool. There is a walking trail play park for kids with a nice nautical climbing structure. We saw 2 bald eagles, my teenager caught a lot of Pokemon...More
