Fabulous site on a bluff with an awesome view. Truly a treasure in the state of Oregon. Almost a religious experience to visit. Nicely restored old lighthouse.
We were on a mad dash to see all the lighthouses before dark and barely made this one! It was beautiful to see just after sunset, but I definitely recommend seeing it during the day, too. This is Oregon's only working lighthouse and got it's name from the 200' white cliffs that it sits on. It's a beautiful area and... More
On a day when most of the coast was being caressed by a gentle breeze, the winds at Cape Blanco were fierce, although we were told by the volunteers that it was nothing compared to how it usually is there!

Plan on wind when you get here. It is interesting to be at the westernmost spot in Oregon. We arrived on a day it was closed but the light house looked beautiful from the distance. This is a must see on the coast.
This is really worth the side trip. It's a few miles off 101 but what a great lighthouse! The campground at Cape Blanco State Park is a nice secluded stop over as well.

It was "way cool" to visit the westernmost place in the United States! The view was beautiful. It was really cold and windy--although it was a sunny day. The wind almost blew my iPad from my hands! This lighthouse is well worth the side trip!

History was interesting and we especially enjoyed 'Bob' in his lighthouse-keeper navy suit with all the correct emblems and stripes. HIs knowledge is remarkable.... More
The setting alone for the lighthouse makes this stop worthwhile. The docent was excellent and the climb to the light along with the view make this a five star stop. Be prepared for strong winds though.
