We decided to visit the Yaquina Bay park area just north of the bridge and found the lighthouse. It was close to closing time but the park rangers allowed us to go through anyway. We like visiting historical places and this one was a great place even though we had to rush through. We will definitely return when we can... More

Such a beautiful and quaint lighthouse. I really enjoyed the fact that it's contents have been so well preserved. Although going to the top isn't optional, the second story offers an exceptional view.

We went on the tour and were given a first person reenactment tour of the lighthouse. The guide was speaking as a keeper from the late 1800s. He was very knowledgeableand responded well to questions. Make sure you sign up for the tour at the center prior to the tour. If not, you will not be admitted to the tour.... More

We didn't get to explore the lighthouse as closely as we would have liked but we had fun looking around it.

Even in winter, the museum at the lighthouse is open. Wonderful displays and interactive actives. There is even a nice area for viewing the video clips. The staff was very nice and informative. You can tell they like their jobs. The gift shops was not bad. The tide pools area has a very long incline down to the pools. If... More

we arrived in the afternoon just in time to take pictures of the scenery in the golden gleam. The waves and the rockscape made a fantastic picture of symphony of the sea.

Nice location and good view of the area. Built in 1871 and was replaced three years later by the brighter Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. If you appreciate lighthouses and their places in maritime history and how tthey aid in the preservation of this history you will enjoy this lighthouse.
