There is no public access to the lighthouse, which is located on the grounds of the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Plant. Special permission to view the lighthouse must be obtained from the nuclear plant authorities. The gate to the nuclear plant is located off Highway 790, about 5 miles from Highway 1.
Jeff Shanks writes, "The property that the tower sits on is cordoned off via a chain link fence with barbed wire cap and you cannot access the grounds of the power plant. There is a very regular patrol of the perimeter fencing." He recommends requesting permission well in advance to visit the lighthouse.
