Check the tide tables before visiting the light house in high tide you can not walk there. Beautiful Sea Stacks waves, and sunset who could ask for more. The light house was very charming!

This location is eye and soul candy. If you are brave enough, walk the pier. The park area is super clean and has very clean restrooms. Great place for a picnic lunch or just to sit and take it all in at many of their benches and picnic tables. If you like disc golf, this park has one of the... More

We lucked out and the morning was sunny and clear. Most days in Crescent City are foggy in September. Lucked out and actually be able to walk to the Lighthouse. You have to wait for the tide to be low enough which only happens about 10 days out of the month. Wonderful and very informative tour. Highly recommend the tour... More

The lighthouse is well maintained and is really located on a pretty point. The walk to the lighthouse starts with a handicap ramp.

This is the best place in town to catch a sunset. You can see it sink over the hundreds of rocks west of town. There are huge driftwood logs to sit on. It is romantic!

This lighthouse has a beautiful setting and from the Crescent Beach Motel we could see just a bit of it. We drove on up and took a closer view when we left the area and got some good photos. Loved our stay in this town!

At low tide you can walk to the island and lighthouse but it can also be viewed from the parking area. A very picturesque lighthouse. $3 entrance fee which pays for the upkeep of the building.

I was very pleased to be able to visit and tour Battery Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse in only accessible during low tide. Therefore the visiting hours change slightly each day. Our hotel was able to provide information on when the lighthouse would be open. The walk across the rocks is not difficult but warrants some caution. The kids loved the... More

We had such a great time on our lighthouse tour. The staff was friendly and extremely informative. My family loved having to wait for low tide to cross to the lighthouse. The views were amazing!
