The State of Maryland leased the lighthouse for some time, though this arrangement was canceled in 1980 when the Navy refused to fix a problem with the water system. The Navy was uninterested in maintaining the lighthouse, and the structure?s only upkeep after 1980 was a superficial cleaning made by volunteers of Point Lookout State Park prior to an annual open house. At other times, the lighthouse, contained within a fenced establishment that was part of the naval air station?s radio tracking system, was off-limits. In 2002, the Navy did contract for a thorough restoration of the lighthouse?s exterior, and the structure was painted using the color scheme it had in 1927. In a land swap deal, the lighthouse was turned over to the State of Maryland in 2006, and six months later, Laura Berg, who had lived in the lighthouse from 1980 to 1981, co-founded the Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society.
