Total number of guests over 50 could require additional charges. Minimum height requirement for anyone to climb is 40” with no exceptions.
- The Cape St. George Lighthouse is located in a Franklin County public park. The park includes two beachfront pavilions, available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance. There are areas of the park that can accommodate chairs or small tents; however, driving tent spikes into the ground must be coordinated with the St. George Lighthouse Association to avoid damage to underground irrigation equipment.
- Catering, flowers, music, trash disposal, photographers, notaries and other amenities beyond use of the Lighthouse are not provided by the St. George Lighthouse Association and are the responsibility of the wedding/event party. The applicant will be liable for any cost incurred as a result of damage to the site by any guests or vendors attending the event.
- Parking is available in parking lots on east and west ends of the park. No vehicles are allowed on the grass or pathways in the park.
- The St. George Lighthouse Association bears no responsibility for provision of an alternate site in the event that any circumstance would make use of the lighthouse or park untenable (for example, weather-related issues).
