The octagonal shaped tower height is 30 feet, and the markings are a white with black lantern. The original lighthouse was decommissioned, and replaced by a steal light tower built near the shoreline. The lighthouse has been automated since 1973.

Stony Point Lighthouse is currently a private residence, but they do allow you to take a few pictures.
