Due to impacts from COVID-19, lighthouses within Cape Cod National Seashore remain closed. Decisions about summer 2022 operations are pending. Visitors are welcome to visit the grounds and view the buildings from outside. There are several lighthouses within Cape Cod National Seashore, reminding us of the Outer Cape's strong connection to the sea. Some of the lighthouses are maintained by partners, such as the Nauset Light Preservation Society and Eastern National. These organizations open the lighthouses to the public seasonally, and also provide the necessary maintenance to ensure that the lights shine brightly and are open to the public long into the future. Highland Light, Truro: Keeper's Shop and tours typically available from late spring through early fall. Operated by Eastern National.

Nauset Light, Eastham: Open several times a week from spring through fall. Operated by Nauset Light Preservation Society.

Three Sisters Lights, Eastham: Open for tours periodically from spring through fall.

Pick up a copy of the seasonal activity guide at a visitor center for tour days and times.

Race Point, Wood End, and Long Point lights in Provincetown are accessed by walking over sand. The Cape Cod Chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation operates Race Point Light, and occasionally hosts open houses with free transportation to the light. Wood End and Long Point lights are not open to the public.
