  • Restoration work is proceeding on the Bodie Island Lighthouse. When it's finished, the tower will be the 4th lighthouse in North Carolina open to the public for climbing.
  • Beautiful and iconic lighthouse. Worth a short stop
  • There are 214 steps from the bottom to the top of the lighthouse, so make sure you wear comfy shoes!
  • Find the reservation number to reserve your tour time this isn't come as you go like Hatteras or currituck.
  • Tours are $8/person and $4/child. Unfortunately, there's a height requirement and you can't carry a child up, even if they're strapped to you.
  • Seeing a water spout over the sound was the best!!!!
  • Very nice lighthouse :) got to tour it 3 yrs ago before the craziness!!
  • Walk out onto the boardwalk in the marsh. Gorgeous views!
  • Watch out for snakes in the grass
  • You can now climb to the top.
  • The different views of the lighthouse are amazing!
  • This was fun, aim for around lunchtime as the crowd lightens. And try not to get stuck behind a group if you're on the more athletic side.
  • Ticket required to climb the lighthouse, but a very limited number of tickets are available each day. Plan to arrive at 9am. Also, there isn't anything else to see or do besides climb the lighthouse.
  • It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be.
  • If there is a thunder storm coming don't go because they shut down the lighthouse until 30 minutes after the last thunder/lightning is seen or heard.
  • Pretty view from the boardwalk, but you need to make sure to get there early so there will be enough tickets for time slots for your whole group.
  • Amazing Lighthouse must see!
  • Be sure to take the deck walk on the side!
  • A nice, free tourist attraction. The parks service closed the lighthouse (inside only) on very hot summer days for safety.
  • Perfect half day of activities. Walk the grounds while you're here
