Fascinating

A must see. Wonderful tours and views. Gets windy and foggy out there on Cape Blanco but that's the charm of the experience.

Likely to be windy as this sits out on a point. Park and walk up to the light house. Great views. Visit on a clear night to see stars/planets as there's virtually no light pollution.

This picturesque lighthouse is located on a windy point. Tours are available but we skipped it this time. Numerous painters were painting the scene today. Perhaps it was a club, a class, or a competition. Other than the wind they had perfect weather.

As far as photogenic lighthouses, this one seems to me to be the best of the pick on Oregon's coast! They had a volunteer dressed as an early 1900s lightkeeper who gave a lot of great information. For instance, I learned that the rocks we see close to the beaches actually extend five or six miles out. The lighthouse is... More

Stopped here and at the Hughes House on a foggy and windy day. A nice stop for history buffs. We didn't take the $2 tour to the top of the staircase because it was too foggy to see anything. The lighthouse is about 5 miles from Highway 101. It's worth a stop if the weather is clear and you're not... More

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
