This is a little tricky to find but worth the effort. Lighthouse was not open but was able to walk across bridge to the lower deck.

Ok, needs a little work. It's a little hard to get here, past a big fence with barbed wire. Not sure what's going behind the barbed wire. The lighthouse is falling into disrepair and lacks much charm, but it was a nice enough walk.

Working still on dismantling an old GM plant next to the lighthouse and you couldn't even get close to see it.

Nice little Lighthouse with incredible views all around. The park is excellent and get great views of the lighthouse and the bridge. Couldn't access the Lighthouse as it was fenced off, but still got to see and and snap some photos.

This is a beautiful park with pretty trees, picnic tables, places for volley ball. $5 parking-can be crowded on weekends. The lighthouse tour requests a donation but the amount is up to you. The lighthouse is well kept and has a good view of the...More

Absolutely - you could walk along the road over to the park and to the lighthouse. It was maybe a 5 minute drive from the train station to the park so walking wouldn't be a problem.
