This park is beautiful. The light house is set directly across from Ram Island Lighthouse - so it's a two for one stop. There are great spots for a picnic lunch and a little museum if you have time for a nominal fee.

This was a stop for my family on our way to Acadia National Park from Boston. It was definitely worth the slight detour to stop for lunch and enjoy some great scenery. It was a very clean park, too.

The lighthouse is a photographer's dream. I shot it from every possible angle and still wanted more. The park is wonderful and you must, must, must get a lobster roll from the food truck.

Park is free and a great place to walk around and enjoy the views. Just added a children's garden that is great for the young kids.
