We stopped by during the week in mid May and had the place to ourselves. The lighthouse and museum were closed, but we could still walk around and the kids loved playing on the wooden pirate ship playset.

I wasn't planning on stopping but glad I did. $5 for adults & $3 for kids - under 12. Great views if you are willing to climb to the top. About 100 feet up. We make a habit of seeing and going to as many lighthouses as possible. This is unique to us. All metal. Very narrow spiral stair case.... More

It doesn't look like a typical lighthouse. There is metal around it and it looks like it is holding it up. It doesn't matter how it looks as long as it functions.

Unusual lighthouse, with a nice museum and gift shop attached. A wonderful pirate ship playground for the kids while mom and dad explore the museum and lighhouse.

You pretty much see the whole thing when you drive up...they have climbs on Saturdays if you're energetic. Museum worth a stop.

had fun here and enjoy the mini museum in the old light keepers house, kids loved the outdoor pirate ship to play on. The light house is nicely maintained but the "climb" is disappointing. You can't climb to the top to view the surroundings. Just a small window.

This lighthouse is a spare girder structure. Not inspiring. There may be an exhibit but we didn't look for it.

Most lighthouses are located off traveled highways. Crooked River is right on Highway 98. Clean grounds and playground for the kids.

Close to road easy access. Doing work to make it better. Thanks for keeping that part of history. Enjoyed.
