Point Robinson is a 10-acre park that stretches along the shoreline of Maury Island’s east side. The Park is a great destination for families due to an historical lighthouse, dramatic view to Mount Rainier, driftwood “playground,” a saltwater marsh, walking trails and picnic tables.

The lighthouse itself has been in service guiding ships through the night and fog since 1885. It was manned for nearly 100 years, until 1978 when it became fully automated. Since the time of automation, the keepers’ quarters fell into disrepair and were subsequently restored for use as rentals with all proceeds going toward the Park’s restoration and maintenance.

In total, Point Robinson Lighthouse is one of 19 U.S. lighthouses still standing on the Puget Sound, not all of which are currently in use. The others include (from north to south):
