Nice lighthouse

Closes at 4 so get there early if you want to see it up close. Park open til 10. Lighthouse is small, but cute. Nice photo ops, even if it's closed

In almost mint condition. Easy walk to get nice and close. The drive allowed us to see the bridge. Loved the puffins.

It was a nice little lighthouse with a nice gift shop, but not sure if it is worth the cost. I seen other lighthouses that were free and better. The history was interesting and their were tide pools and some hiking possible there. It wasn't bad, just wish they would have allowed dogs in more locations.

This is run by the national park service. It costs $7 per car to enter. The visitor center has good information. There are several trails that are either paved and 1 gravel trail a person can hike. There are daily tours of the lighthouse except Wednesday if you are so inclined. They seem to be around 12 - 2, but... More

The lighthouse is bigger than I expected and each room is set up in museum format to the time-period. Volunteers working the site were very friendly.

The steps up to the lighthouse might be a little challenging for my toddler, the view from the lighthouse and the lighthouse itself is just beautiful. This is where I learnt a little more about the history of USA and it's old flag that flies with the new one by the lighthouse. The historic video that's playing in the basement... More

Being from NC we love lighthouses. This one has a great vista. We were lucky enough to have the sun come out and not many visitors. Good trails, able to see sea lions. Very relaxing place to soak up sun and nice vistas.

After years of neglect, this older home has been lovingly restored to the point you almost expect the lightkeeper and his wife to step out the door. A true representation of how hard life must have been for them. Thank heavens it has been preserved.

We enjoyed our visit to Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. The house was beautifully restored and we were able to wander freely and take our time looking. There was a short video downstairs that gave the history of the house but there was also an attendant upstairs to answer most of our questions. Admission was by donation.
