We enjoyed exploring the harbor and coastline at Crescent City, during the day & beautiful sunset. Walked over to the lighthouse during low tide and made a circuit around it. What a location and view! Enjoyed looking for plants and creatures in the receding tide pools near the causeway.

You reach this lighthouse by driving through a residential area. Apparently it is still operating. The lighthouse itself is not spectacular in any way. The path to it, through a small beach and the rocks around the lighthouse, were far more interesting than the lighthouse itself.

The light house and its grounds are quite beautiful and the passage at low tide very easy to navigate. I however think that people with mobility issues will have problems navigating rocks, etc on the way out. Guided tours are offered but you must check ahead to see if the tides align with day time tours.

My love for lighthouses will cause me to drive anywhere to view them. This time I headed NW to Cresent City. I arrived in the late afternoon and found the area for the lighthouse by chance due to driving around the town. The once titled Cresent City lighthouse with its Cape-Cod styling is located on an island accessible during low... More

Totally different from the other lighthouses I'd visited. Can be seen from shore but only accessible at low tide when you can walk across the seabed. Easy walk way down to the shore, enjoy the view, enjoy the shore and take pics even if you miss low tide.

If you are ever going through Crescent City, a visit to this lighthouse is worth at least 1/2 hour of your time. You can only walk across a 150-foot ocean stretch in low tide. So, check the local tide schedule first. The lighthouse interior is also ONLY open when the low tide approximates the visiting hours of the lighthouse. You... More

This was one of our favorite places to come to during our one week stay in the Redwoods area. We'd come out here to enjoy the view of the ocean and the tidepools after our hikes in the redwoods. The lighthouse and the tree next to it is so unique and chaming that from afar it almost looks like a... More

A good place to stop to have lunch and relax. It wasn't crowded when I was there and plenty of parking. Beautiful lighthouse and beach to view it from. I would love to stay there for a night.
