Camp grounds are available to individuals and groups for a charge of $5.00 per person/per day. To assure campground space, all reservations must be made through the Keepers by phone or radio. Potable (drinking) water cannot be provided. Campers must supply their own drinking water, food, shelter and cooking facilities. Outdoor composting toilet is provided at campground.
Again, wildlife sanctuary status prohibits the landing of pets.
The light towers are open to climb for the scenic views at the discretion of the Resident Keeper. The exterior deck and the old glassed in site of the original beacon in the North Tower are open to climbers (159 steps) for a 360 degree view of the ocean and the mainland. The top deck of the South Tower is not open to visitors since it houses the Coast Guard’s red flashing navigation beacon. Walking trails to scenic views and points of interest are maintained by Committee and Association volunteer workers.
