    Sitting on Federal Park lands this historic monument welcomes visitors regularly and it's all staffed and filled with sights and history in naval transport and settling and development of Fire Island and its various communities over the years. The walk up is manageable for those in relatively good shape and wasn't crowded at all. The clear day offered excellent views all around even towards NYC. There's a gift shop that also sells snacks and a museum next door that houses the original lamp used in the first iteration of the lighthouse. Recommended visit esp if you enjoy learning.

    I had a beautiful experience here! I loved the long boardwalk leading up the lighthouse. It was a great way to see the natural beauty, flora, and fauna of the island. The lighthouse itself was great. I enjoyed the (~15 min) climb to the top, and the 360 degree views of the island at the top were gorgeous. The guide at the top was friendly, knowledgeable, and informative, and he taught me about the history of the island and the surrounding area.

    There is a half mile trail from the closest parking lot to the lighthouse via boardwalk. We initially checked into the Fresnel lens exhibition and learned so much about the original lighting apparatus.The staff on site was very friendly. From the lighthouse, climbing up the steel spiral stairs to the top was pleasant. You can look out through the windows at every staircase landing. The last stretch is very steep and narrow but there are rope guard rails to hold on to. There is a staff on the platform when you reach the top and the view from the top is so worth it. Luckily, we visited on a clear sunny day and were able to see the NYC skyline from a distance. You can also walk around the platform and see 360 degree views in all directions.

    Have visited the Fire Island Light House area before but we have never climbed up to see the view. But glad we did. The Parks Department Staff enlighten us with history and information. P.S - Elderly and young children may have a hard time climbing the long spiral staircase. Beautiful area and beach.

    One of my favorite attractions and areas on Long Island/Fire Island. Easily accessible from Robert Moses State Park, Field 5 via the beach or the pedestrian walkway. One can visit the Lighthouse itself, or just enjoy it from the outside. The Lighthouse offers tours with a climb to the top, but it’s not necessary to enjoy the lighthouse or the area. It’s extremely picturesque, and a beautiful historic landmark throughout the year.
