The Choptank River Lighthouse kicks off a new season of visitation on Wednesday, May 1. From May through October, the replica lighthouse is open daily from 9:30am to 5:30pm. Stop by for a self-guided tour of the lighthouse and browse the mini-museum with exhibits on the area’s maritime history. On Friday afternoons, Saturdays and Sundays, volunteer lighthouse “keepers” will be on hand to serve as tour guides and visitor info resources. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. The lighthouse is located on the water at the end of Pier A at Long Wharf Park. There is free parking on site.

The lighthouse was completed in 2012 as a replica of a historic lighthouse that guided mariners in the Choptank River a few miles away.
