The tour is worth the fee. The volunteers do a great job of maintaining and leading the tours. I enjoyed the stories of the light keepers and seeing the restored rooms. The lighthouse sits on a small island that is only accessible at low tide - a very unique setting!

You need to check the tide table for this one as you can only walk there at low tide. Stormy days also would not work. It is a short walk - not handicap accessable - out to the lighthouse. tuors a a few dollars and talk about both the light house and tsunamis that have plagued Crescent City. Worth an... More

While the tide was down we walked along the very rocky beach to get closer to the lighthouse. It was really windy so the waves were impressive! A nice way to spend some time while in Crescent City.

This was on our must do list and we thoroughly enjoyed the hike across the low tide area and up the hill to this great location.

Unfortunately we did not get across to get a closer tour of the lighthouse because of the tides. I wish they could build an elevated pathway across so you are not dealing with the tides, but that is I guess the charm of the lighthouse. We did get to visit 2 other lighthouses in southern Oregon, and Battery Point is... More

My husband and I spent the night in a hotel near the lighthouse. We had read that you can walk to it at low tide, but we didn't get a chance. I love lighthouses, so we got pictures of it in the morning fog before we left.

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.
