This place is well worth the visit. The lighthouse, foghorn building and other buildings are open to the public and have many items and historical notes in them. It is a long way from anywhere, but just follow the signs. Make a day of it...More

The lighthouse is slowly deteriorating, so do leave the requested modest $5 for its upkeep. Historic location and beautiful views. The bits of history were interesting - a dangerous magnetic reef offshore surely every sailor's nightmare so great to have a light.

Maddie was very warm to us and helpful with things to do in the island. The view is amazing at the water. I don't have little kids swim as ride is strong but we loved it.

We camped at this quaint spot for 2 nights. The sites are all nice and the views around the place are fantastic! I loved swimming at the private beach and hanging out on the rocks. Maddie, who runs the place is awesome!

I'm a year late on this one, but the cost is $25 per nite and your site is still there and probably available till Sept 13th this year.
