it was very nice to be able to access the trail from the info center to the lighthouse with my electric scooter. The weather was wonderful and the paved trail was easy to travel on.

Great place to see the old lighthouse where people have lived for eons. They have historic furniture and all the rooms in the house are stocked with historically accurate items. They let you simple walk around the house and check out the individual rooms at your leisure. Great place to take a tour for an inexpensive price (donations). I recommend... More

As you drive in to the lighthouse there is a large pull out area to park. The light sits up on a hill and they were working on it when we were there. Seems they are building a tall observation tower next to the lighthouse. Take the time to enjoy the view, from here you see the inlet, bay, and... More

Yaquina bay lighthouse sits high on a hill overlooking the ocean. Legend has it that a light keepers daughter was murdered here and her spirit haunts the lighthouse.

This little guy, only used for three years, has a big heart and wonderful volunteers. The view is spectacular and it is a real glimpse into what life was like for the brave Keepers and their families. Stop by for a quick look. You won't be disappointed. Great story - Make sure you check out the video in the basement.

The area around the Yaquina Bay lighthouse with the large bridge, sweeping breakers in the bay and the short-lived Lighthouse all adds atmosphere to make you believe the ghost story. It well worth a walk around here for the views and to let you imagination run wild.

This was only used as a lighthouse for a few years when Yaquina Head became the lighthouse. Still, very interesting story.

Great job has been done renovating this lighthouse! Beautiful home of this period to be enjoyed. Interesting history it holds. Poor planning that it was only in use for a few short years.
