The East Point Light, known as the Maurice River Light before 1913, is a lighthouse located in Heislerville, New Jersey on the Delaware Bay at the mouth of the Maurice River in Maurice River Township, Cumberland County, New Jersey, United States. The lighthouse was built in 1849 and is the second oldest in New Jersey, with only the Sandy Hook Light, which was built in 1764, being older. The light was inactive from 1941 and was nearly destroyed by fire in 1971. The light was reinstated by the United States Coast Guard in 1980. Exterior restoration was completed in 1999.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 25, 1995.

This location is a sunrise, sunset and Milky Way location photography hot spot. It is pretty much in the middle of no man’s land. We paired this up with our Cape May photography shoot. Plan your trip around the Milky Way being visible. You can create dynamic milky way images at this location between April and October. See our Dark Sky Photography Info page for more details about Milky Way photography.

Around the lighthouse there some very boring beach area. The location is not good for photography but it is good for stopping and working on your tan for a minute. The only interesting thing we found this day was this truck about to be washed out to sea.


Really powerful editing software for great Milky Way images. Check out the video!
