It is free to go in and you do not need to be on a tour to see it. I liked that. There is a beautiful view and I love looking at history. I recommend this light house as the best because we could go right in there was no waiting.

I loved the lighthouse, although the day we were there it was so blustry, I almost blew away, but it was fun to walk around

We stopped here one after noon and it was beautiful. There is ample parking and a great view. You can go inside the house and see the old rooms. You can see the bridge from the parking lot and walk out into the beach. But be careful, it's very windy!

It's a beautiful site, nice walk and more to see than just the lighthouse. Don't forget your camera.

On vacation visiting the sights around Newport, OR we stopped to check out the Lighthouse at Yaquina Bay. To get to the lighthouse, you have to pay a entrance fee for the State Park. It was $7.00 for daily fee while we were there. Once past the fee booth, you drive a little ways and can check out the interpretive... More

Touring this lighthouse, learning about some history of the area, and great views make this stop a worthwhile diversion. The volunteers provide some insight into this family home with lighthouse. The price is definitely right -- whatever you wish to donate. The surroundings provide a scenic view of the Yaquina Bay Bridge, marina, and ocean.

Different than the usual style of lighthouses you will see at the Yaquina Outstanding area or Heceta head, this one has the actual living quarters attached and preserved/furnished along with information about the family that lived there.

I was able to take some very nice pictures of both wildlife and scenery. From here you can see very far in both directions.

We drove down to the light house because we thought sounded nice. We got a surprise (not in a good way whatsoever) when we saw that you actually had to PAY for parking/seeing the light house. We unfortunately paid this insane fee and went to see the light house which by the way, you cannot visit inside. You could see... More
