Turkey Point Light Station Contest Photos for 2013

Mr. Wagerle has kindly given his permission for TPLS to use his picture for a new postcard.

I was reading your website on the light station and clicking through your photos.  My wife and I
drove out to the light station early this spring. It was our first time there and we had a wonderful afternon. I just regret that I couldn't go up in it at the time and plan to return soon. I wish you all the success in your renvovation plans. While tehre, I took the above photo of the sunset. - Craig W.

I love Elk Neck State Park. And I was SO excited to actually go up into the Lighthouse at Turkey Point. There's something mystical about lighthouses. It may sound nutty but when I enter an old lighthouse, I close my eyes and I can feel the energy of the keepers and the history. And Turkey Point Lighthouse is awesome. I enjoy looking out over the cliffs. It's like looking out over the world in a sense. - Angie L.


Our family visited the light station on a lovely late October afternoon while camping one weekend at Elk Neck State Park. The kids thought it was a great adventure.  Here is our son, Sawyer, pretending to be a giant leaning on the light station. Thank you for a fun family outing. - Cheers, Hillery H.
