Climb the Barnegat Lighthouse

Lit in 1859, “Ol’ Barney” stands as the 172-ft. anchor of the 32-acre Barnegat Lighthouse State Park. The light creates a single beam that can be visible for up to 22 nautical miles.

The park also features a short trail through a maritime forest, a rock jetty, picnicking and fishing areas, and an interpretive center. Check out unique evening climbs. A panoramic view of Island Beach, Barnegat Bay, and Long Beach Island awaits visitors at the top of Barnegat Lighthouse.

Visitors can also catch the views from the top without climbing the 217 steps, thanks to four cameras that transmit live images of the view to a display in the adjacent Interpretive Center.
