Climbed to the top

Great view from the cliffs both North and South. Brought binoculars to look for whales. Easy climb to the top. Can be very windy.

Cape Blanco Lighthouse is located in the southernmost of the Oregon Coast, not far from the California border, or a couple miles north of Port Orford. The view all around the lighthouse is awesome and you have to climb to the top in order to appreciate it more. It was super windy when we got there but I managed to... More

Volunteers lead tours of this lighthouse and you can climb the circular stairs to the top to see the light and the spectacular view. There can be a wait on the weekends, but there's usually not a wait mid-week.

Interesting Oregon lighthouse perched on the tip of Cape Blanco. Very blustery and impressive coastal views. Recommend the tour to the top of the lighthouse

Likely the most picturesque light house we have seen. The volunteers do a great job as well. You can get right up to the lense, and the views are breath taking. Also, don't miss the Highes House which is also on the property.

Lighthouse is amazing. The Fresnel Lens has some chips in it, but looks good for the most part. There is a small 2 dollar fee for the tour but it is worth it. Also purchased a t shirt as part of being a tourist. Really makes you admire and appreciate how tough the lighthouse keepers must have been. This lighthouse... More

What a kick to be able to hear the history of the Lighthouse once manned by three lighthouse keepers, and climb to the top. A lovely husband and wife team of volunteers gave both a history and a tour of the highest lighthouse on the OR coast. It is also the westernmost lighthouse in the U.S. There are 62 steps... More

A fast stop during a cold, blustery day left little time to visit the lighthouse but produced some very nice pictures.

The Cape Blanco lighthouse is well maintained and beautiful. It is surrounded by scenery that is striking and beautiful. This is one of the most picturesque lighthouses along the Oregon Coast.
