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.

We drove from Cape San Blas for the express purpose of going to this lighthouse. It is only open on the weekends. The Museum was excellent. 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

This was a lovely experience in visiting a lighthouse and actually fabricated lighthouse keeper's home. There is a giant looking pirate ship and lovely playground for children in a quiet and well tended park. The history found inside the lighthouse Keeper's house was facinating and interesting.. There had been two keepers of the lighthouse and two homes constructed .. pretty... More

Great place to learn some local history and if you can goto the top of the light house. Easy to access off of Hwy 98 and even has a play ground for the little ones. Personal tour of the keeper house is a great touch.
