The lifesaving station was open for tours. There are lifesaving boats and other equipment and all the rooms are furnished. You can climb to all but the highest part of the lookout tower. It was an enjoyable half an hour or so.

We enjoyed visiting this well maintained historic site within the National Seashore. The hours it's open to walk through are limited in the fall but it was worth coordinating to get a sneak peak into the history behind the U.S. Lifesaving Service. The artifacts are well maintained and combined with a visit to the Visitor's Center, easy to understand their past and relevance. The only downside, the volunteers working didn't even acknowledge our presence or ask if we had any questions. Aside from that, it was great!

Great artifacts and guided tour explanation of life in the U.S. Life-Saving Service before that morphed into the U.S. Coast Guard. The training and dedication these guys put in more than 100 years ago to save shipwreck victims was amazing. Watching the 6 PM Thursday-evening demonstrations of the Lyle Gun and beeches buoy rescue method is a particularly good time to go!

We stopped here as part of the Junior Park Ranger badge requirements for Cape May National Park. It was really nice and volunteers were so informative. One gentleman working the day we went was the grandson of people who who were stationed there. The paths were easy to access with a stroller and near a beach if you want to look around.
