Visit the Barnegat Lighthouse State Park Home Page

The site of Barnegat Lighthouse on the
northern tip of Long Beach Island in Ocean County was regarded as one of the most
crucial "change of course" points for coastal vessels. Vessels bound to and from New York along the New Jersey coastline depended on Barnegat Lighthouse to avoid the shoals extending from the shoreline. The swift
currents, shifting sandbars, and the offshore shoals challenged the skills of even the most experienced sailor. The park is included as a maritime site on the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail.
