Rock Island Lighthouse

42361 Rock Island West
Clayton, NY 13624


Historic Sites


One of the few lighthouses in the region where you can climb to the lantern room.  Our lighthouses are small so this is an activity for all age groups. More than just the lighthouse, the entire island is open for exploration.  The lighthouse keeper’s home houses memorabilia and amazing history about the men and their families that lived there and the history of the beacon that has saved many lives in this narrow and rocky part of the St. Lawrence Seaway.

Group transportation can be arranged by Clayton Island Tours.
