Awesome View

Great place to hang little bit of a walk but well worth the trip. Look down on the rocks for all the seal lions.

Saw it but didn't really explore since the Yaquina Head and other light houses were more impressive. Would visit if had more time.

If you like lighthouses this is a good one to visit. Also north on highway 101 there is another one but it requires a short walk to see.

This lighthouse was right next to our motel. Went to explore and accidentally stumbled on the noon tour. Small and personal with a lovely guide. 45 minutes total, and a fantastic view at the top! Definitely worth stopping to see

This looks just like a house, we drive right past it, once we realized what it was, we stopped and looked at it, and it was really neat and really old

This lighthouse is one of the few that actually have the house still intact. It is well restored and furnished and gives the visitor a good idea of the life and work of a keeper. The little gift shop has a great variety of items and the volunteer staff are very friendly and helpful. A perfect place to teach children... More

This lighthouse had a very short history but what there was is fascinating. Entry is by donation to the old lighthouse and living quarters. Volunteers in the entry way and in the gift shop are friendly and love to tell about the history of the lighthouse and other lighthouses on the Oregon Coast. There is no access to the lighthouse...

This lighthouse has self guided tours, and is a fun quick activity. The lighthouse is beautiful, and they have good educational material.
