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.

Didn't even know it was here! Was a little early for admission, but did get a great pic! Heard from another traveler that the climb to the top was spectacular.

This is a typical lighthouse with the crazy steep stairs that get even more narrow as you get close to the top. See pics which shows that even a small foot doesn't even fit all the way on the step. You must go at an angle. I've had knee surgery and my knees were weak by the time I climbed... More

We love lighthouses and this one is special because it is not the usual brick and mortar style . It is now a museum and has a nice interpretive talk showing the history of this and similar lighthouses in the area. There are many items that would have been in the original home and a nice friendly guide.

They had pictures of the lighthouse, along with lights used in the house previously. They had the drawings of the lighthouse and showed how it was delivered in a kit and assembled by part... More

We arrived a hour before it was scheduled to open. Two ladies were running the show. I asked if we could go up and they said yes. We went up by ourselves. Loved the view. I've never been in a lighthouse like this before. It was cool. When we came down one of the ladies give us ideas as to... More
