I wanted to go....glad I looked at the website before driving over there. It said the are closed for the winter. Looking at recent posts I wouldn't have suspected that. Too bad. I really wanted to see this.

While off the beaten path for most travelers, I'm lucky to go here because I have friends that live only two miles up on Cape Blanco Road. When the wind isn't blowing, it's a great place to walk or sit on the beach. The setting is lovely.

Pretty drive out to this lighthouse. I was there after the season so it was closed. The head is super windy but with great views.

Beautiful view from this spot, but not much to look at inside the lighthouse as people are not allowed up the stairs.

Cape Blanco Lighthouse is standing on a peninsula over looking the Pacific Ocean. Volunteers run a nice gift shop in an additional building on the property and there are tours provided of the lighthouse. Check days & times when they are open. You can view the outside of lighthouse 24/7.

The Cape Blanco lighthouse is another beautiful monument along the coast just south of Bandon and north of Port Orford. Taken the long drive through the Cape Blanco state park following signs to the lighthouse. The first parking sports are suitable for trailers and RVs but cars can proceed up the one lane road all the way to the lighthouse... More

Cape Blanco sticks out into the Pacific and is high up, so there is always wind. When we were there, there was a constant gale blowing, probably 40 mph or more. There is an excellent visitor center where you can find out about the geology and birds of the area. You can go in the light house too and volunteers... More

Even though it was closed when we got there, we took a hike and walked around. Beautiful lighthouse and surrounding area. Very windy, but that's part of the charm. We even found the whale rock (at least that's what we called it)! Loved every minute of it!! The walk to the pioneer cemetery was interesting as well.
