Beautiful Lighthouse
Jun 2020
Beautiful Lighthouse on the Washington coast on the North side of Cape Disappointment. The views from the site are incredible and the light is maintained in its original beauty. The hike to the lighthouse is a nice walk, but a bit of a climb.

Watching the waves crash into the boulders, hearing the roar of the water...it’s an amazing setting for viewing this lighthouse. Definitely worth seeing—unforgettable flora & fauna, too: How many plants & birds can you identify?

So gorgeous. I loved this easy hike. What amazing views. I highly recommend you visit. We had perfect weather, bring a jacket for the wind though.

Amazing Getaway!

My boyfriend reserved the north Head lighthouse keepers residence and we stayed 4 days and 3 nights. The house itself is absolutely beautiful inside it is stocked with everything you need! The history need to stay even more exciting, to say the least it was an absolute adventure!! I am already driving him crazy to take me back :-) if you have the opportunity, make your reservation, don't let it pass you by!

Beautifully renovated lighthouse and park

We visited North Head Lighthouse on a cold, dreary day in November. But the pathways throughout the area of the lighthouse were very walker friendly, and we did get a view of the wonderfully restored lighthouse. It was dreary enough that the light was working!

pretty view
Sep 2019
Reading some other reviews that people had walked to this lighthouse. I am not sure we thought it was accessible to visit, or maybe it was not when we were there? We did however walk around the Visitor Center and the fort and took pictures of the lighthouse from there.I like taking pictures of lighthouses and this one was a beautiful view.

Climb to the top ! ( When open )
Sep 2019
We were so excited to get in on the last day to take the tour this year. See the park information for the times of the year its open for tours. Dont let the stairs stop you its really not that bad and the views are SO worth it. Loved all of the information the volunteer shared about the area, the lighthouse and even trivia. Cant wait to climb to the top again next year.

For the View
Sep 2019
Short walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse. You get a great view of the dramatic waves below the lighthouse and the panorama of the coast in two directions. We loved the view and would see it again if we came back ! ENJOY
