The Barnegat Lighthouse is located in the Barnegat State Park. The part is on the opposite side of the inlet, on Long Beach Island
The 32-acre park was created in 1957. The main attraction is the lighthouse, which you can climb to the lightkeepers catwalk. From this lofty perch, there are wonderful views of LBI, the Atlantic Ocean, Barnegat Bay, Barnegat Inlet, and Island Beach State Park. Besides the lighthouse, people come to the park to walk, birdwatch, and learn about maritime history and fish.
