The Fort Niagara Lighthouse Streaming Webcam

Built in 1872, this beautiful lighthouse is managed by the Old Fort Niagara Association, which also manages and maintains Old Fort Niagara. There are just a couple of webcams located in lighthouses around the Great Lakes, but this is the only one with hi-def live streaming.

The Fort has a storied marine and marine navigational past and is open to visitors, for free, in the summertime. In 2019, it will be open from July 13 through October 14 from noon to 3 p.m. daily. Learn more about our lighthouse here

Besides a live view of a part of the parade ground, our famed 'French Castle' and 'South Redoubt,' you can see some partial views of our many annual events in realtime that happen on the grounds of Old Fort Niagara throughout the year. The best views and incredible experiences can only be had if you come to visit us in person.

In the background, you can also see live views of water conditions along the southern shores of Lake Ontario. During our summer season, you'll also see some of the absolutely spectacular sunsets that are presented almost daily at Old Fort Niagara.

Our camera will play automatically after it loads.
* Please note every Monday @ 9am EST the streaming server is refreshed.
The broadcast can be interrupted for up to 15 minutes during that time. Sorry for any inconvenience.
