I love walking to TPLS. Almost 55 years now and every trek is different,
from the weather
to the sights along the way. Nothing finer! Marian

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
afternoon. 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 renovation plans. While there, 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.
