This is a fun lighthouse. Listen to the haunted stories and if you are prone to spirits you might just feel one or even see one. I was pregnant and when I went to the basement a cold chill came over me and I know the ghostly lady still lives there. I knew nothing of the haunted stories, but I... More

The lighthouse extends from inside the house. You can take a quick walk through the basement and two floors of the small house, but not the lighthouse, which is only accessible by ladder. Donations are optional.

Lovely park area that houses this very unique lighthouse. Lots of hiking opportunities, picnic areas and just incredible beach views. Make sure you take time to tour the inside of the lighthouse - very interesting and the docents provide very helpful information. Gives you a real flavor of how families who tended the lighthouse would have lived.

We stopped to visit our first light house during our road trip along Oregon's coast. The lighthouse has been converted into a historical museum with a docent there to answer questions and talk to. We found out how small a world it was when she mentioned that she lived for many years in the Coachella Valley and had a long... More

I didn't get groped by a ghost, but people have claimed to have seen the spirit of a murdered girl on the premises. Apparently she was thrown down a well many years ago. Other than the ghostly intrigue, the views are awesome and so is the house that has been turned into a local history museum.

Easy to access beach, long walk to the water though. The lighthouse is interesting and no tour guide needed to attend. Parking is at the base of the lighthouse allowing for a quick trip.

Volunteers were well informed about this small lighthouse that was only used for 3 years. Stairs to get to the building as well as inside.

We were lucky to see a few grey whales on our visit. The park is very beautiful and the museum area is very informative. Great place to see whales, sea lions and lots of sea birds.

We loved it! Went in and it was pretty much a self tour. Very cool old house with era appropriate rooms..... Ask about any haunting, and stay away from the ropes...
