Fodor's Review

Adjacent to the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge, this 3-acre park is a prime spot for a picnic. The 1868 lighthouse has 10 rooms to explore between four levels. Clambakes are held Thursday evenings June–September. To get here, take a ferry from the Sheffield Island Dock.
