Maine Open Lighthouse Day is Saturday, Sept. 9. The grounds have been mowed, the keeper’s house swept, and beautiful new signage has been installed to help interpret some of Squirrel Point’s engaging history. We’re welcoming visitors from 10 am to 3 pm and for the second year in a row, the US Coast Guard is scheduled to be on hand to provide access to the light tower! If you've never visited Squirrel Point Light, we want you to know that the 2/3 mile trail is rough and uneven in places, and that restrooms and drinking water are not available on site. Park at the end of Bald Head Road in Arrowsic and follow signs to the Squirrel Point. Directions.
Located on Arrowsic Island in Maine, Squirrel Point Light is one of four navigational aids dating back to 1895 along the Kennebec River's 11 mile stretch between the Atlantic Ocean and Bath, Maine. The U.S. Coast Guard, which owns the property, has granted the Citizens for Squirrel Point a license to provide access to the site for the benefit of the public and maritime industry for purposes consistent with the repair, maintenance and historic restoration of the facility.
