This was my first trip to the ocean in my life. Also my first lighthouse obviously. I was quite pleased with the experience...the history....the smell of the air....the wind and the wildlife that lived below the cliffs. A must see again place.

This is one of many lighthouses along the Oregon Coast. Fun trip is to drive along Hwy 101 and visit as many as possible. Beautiful coastal view from the observation deck.

Great place to stop with the family. Take pictures, whale watching, and down at the beach for some sea life searches.

If you are a fan of lighthouses, don't miss this one. The history is fun, it is furnished in period furnishings, and they've been known to have Santa sitting in the living room at Christmas time to get pictures with. In the basement you can watch a video with a ghost story based on a story written about the lighthouse,... More

We stopped here on NYE. The tide was way out so there were tons of tide pools to look at. Lots of seals on the rocks at the beach. The lighthouse is being painted so it's covered in plastic. Don't go if that's what you want to see. $7 for a car to get in the park. Worth it.

Don't miss the tour, we climbed to the top of the light house. The museum was very interesting. We enjoyed sitting on the bench and watching the whales, gulls and birds. A beautiful park.

We went through the lighthouse and it is preserved beautifully. The history is so fascinating for a history buff like I am. The patron was so full of interesting trivia about the lighthouse and its history. The grounds are lovely as well. We got some stunning photos.
