We have tried to stop at every lighthouse on the Oregon coast. This one was unique. Wood construction. Worth the side trip. There is a big watch tower right next to it and power lines all around that make photographs difficult.
Great stop at the Yaquina Lighthouse and associated area. The lighthouse is enough to see. However, we were there at low tide, so the tidal pool viewing was tremendous. Tons of anemone, sea urchins, and other tidal dwellers to see. In addition, behind the lighthouse...More
beautiful lighthouse and surrounding beach and hiking trails. We saw gray whales, sea lions, peregrine falcons, common murres and cormorants. Largest lighthouse on the Oregon coast. Worth the $7 park fee.

The views are spectacular and getting to the lighthouse is easy. It is a short walk to the lighthouse from the parking lot but tours are only available from 11-4. As you can see the house where the light keeper lived needs a lot of...More

The lessor known Yaquina Bay Lighthouse near the bay bridge in Newport (about 3 miles south) can also be considered. Hours are noon - 4 pm this summer with no entry fee and still good views.
