Hiked all the way out to green's point. Mud was terrible but the view & waves were worth it. Rock sculpture is also fun to do.

This would have been a great place but the weather was "murky". We were totally socked in with fog. The lighthouse exhibit is well done and very interesting. On a nice day, the view would be fantastic.

Really enjoyed our stop at the lighthouse even though the fog was thick. Beautiful location! Store was closed for some reason but park was open.

Very nice, with interpretive info inside and nice staff. There are trails in the area. No charge but donations accepted so don't forget to put a few bucks in your pocket!

Very picturesque! Arrived after closing so could not go inside but took some great photos. We walked the trail along the coastline for a bit. Also very nice views.

We've seen pictures of this lighthouse in many pictures and it lives up to its rep. We visited on a cloudy day and it still looked solid and majestic. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

This historic lighthouse was only 5 minutes away from my motel in Lubec. After seeing pretty photos of it over the years, I wanted to drop by, enjoy the lovely surrounding scenery, take my own photos, and take a walk in the woods. Lots of...More
