Lighthouse Lantern Room Panorama
A panoramic view of the Cape Lookout lighthouse's lantern room is available on Dr. Laddie Crisp's Cape Lookout Panorama webpage. (Note: this link will take you away from the NPS website.)
This panorama was made possible with help from the U.S. Coast Guard Sector North Carolina.
Because the Cape Lookout lighthouse is still a working aide to navigation, the lantern room is closed to the public. The lighthouse up to the watch room (just below the lantern room) is open seasonally for lighthouse climbs.
Additional panoramas, including some of other North Carolina lighthouses, can be found on Dr. Laddie Crisp's Virtual Reality Photography webpage. (Note: this link will take you away from the NPS website.)
