You have to earn seeing this place, its over 10 mile round trip to get here. So worth it though, they let you go up in the lighthouse so you can check out the view. You can even volunteer to stay and take care of it for a week.

Your investment of time and walking effort will be rewarded. Located in the midst of the wildlife refuge, this is an oasis for hikers, with picnic tables, a real restroom and fresh water--with the added bonus of a free tour to the top of of an 1857 lighthouse (hours 9 to 5). For the safest hike, check your tide tables,... More

It was nice to have a final destination for this 11 mile RT hike. There were picnic tables, restrooms, water, and friendly guest "keepers." Bring a lunch!

We went here on a hike last weekend and immediately upon getting home, I went on-line to see about becoming a lightkeeper. This place is simply amazing - the views incredible and the quiet and solitude will calm your soul. The hike out to the lighthouse is long but not too difficult - take your time. Bring water and snacks... More

If you are a lighthouse lover, the New Dungeness Lighthouse is a neat place to visit. The staff there is very friendly and helpful. It requires a very long (11 mile round trip) walk in the sand (or a boat) to reach the lighthouse.

Always a favorite hike when friends visit. It is long, but flat and fun to explore the beach, and have a lunch when one reaches the lighthouse.

We hiked the beach to the lighthouse and enjoyed the view from the top. We were somewhat disappointed that the only wildlife to be seen was seagulls, though we did see two immature eagles flying in the distance. No seals to be seen. The trek is not for the faint of heart. An eleven-mile trek along the beach is tiring,... More

If you have a National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass you can take three guests in with you for free. Otherwise there is a three dollar fee per four people. Dogs are not allowed on the trail to the Lighthouse. Pack you picnic lunch because there is no food service. There is a lighthouse keeper who will take you... More

I have hiked to the lighthouse atleast 2X every year I have manage to visit Dungeness Bay! I love how it sits so clear & calmly at the end of the Spit. My next hope is to volunteer as a keeper....soon!

Lovely walk out. Not your typical sandy beach, bring a good pair of sneakers or hiking shoes. As with more shores along the sound and strait, it's quite rocky. The walk out is more than worth it though. The volunteers are very welcoming and friendly. Touring this lighthouse is certainly something that should be on your list!
