We are asking our guests to wear a mask when you visit us at the Crooked River Lighthouse and Keeper’s House Museum and Gift Shop. In order to help keep our visitors and staff safe, we will continue to limit the number of guests inside at one time, provide hand sanitizer, and follow enhanced cleaning procedures. While masks are not required, for your safety and ours it would be appreciated! Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness.

Crooked River Lighthouse Hosts a Night of Magical History
125th Birthday of the Lighthouse was celebrated on November 28, 2020
The amazing night hosted an adapted Lantern Fest with the Crooked River Lighthouse throughout the grounds of Lighthouse Park. Local lore, glowing lanterns, music, ancient craft demonstrations, and food brought magic and history together! This unique birthday party was in honor of this 1895 maritime landmark, the Crooked River Lighthouse.
Carrabelle Lighthouse Association
Today, the CLA's members are devoted to the worthy cause of restoring this small piece of maritime history. Through its efforts, the CLA has received funds from the Florida Lighthouse Association, the Florida Communities Trust, and the Florida Legislature. These funds have made possible the restoration of the lighthouse and improvements to the land surrounding the lighthouse. If you would like to help continue the work of maintaining the Crooked River Lighthouse, please join the CLA or make a tax deductible donation today.
