East Point Lighthouse

The East Point Lighthouse is located on the Southern Bayshore in Cumberland County, New Jersey. The historic and active Lighthouse marks the mouth of the Maurice River on the Delaware Bay and has guided commercial fishermen and pleasure boaters since 1849. Its distinctive Cape Cod style was the inspiration for many of the early lighthouses built on the Pacific Coast. The Lighthouse is fully restored, furnished and is open year round for tours and special events. With a Class 4 rating on the Bortle scale, the East Point Lighthouse is popular for photographers wanting to capture the night sky and Milky Way with a picturesque foreground.
