“Umpqua River Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The Umpqua River Lighthouse was interesting to see, especially from the overlook. It sits nestled in and surrounded by redwood trees, beautiful! There is an overlook at the lighthouse for whale watching (during season). The station is located on Coast Guard property so you cannot tour inside of it, but it's a small station, so not much to see. But, the drive to it is very pleasant and the view from the area is very enjoyable and worth the drive.

“nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

although it is not as pictues as maybe some of the others along the coast line it is one of the more facinating funtioning lighthouses along the coast with its history and along one of the most terturous ocean bars to cross among coast guard historians , it has been serving the umpqua basin for year ,, thanks a bunch US Coast Guard and Douglas County for a cool place to stop and see ,,,,

“Historic But Simple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

It certainly is a historic lighthouse that served travellers well. But it is one of the more simplier structures compared to other magnificant lighthouses along the Oregon Coast.
