We visited Crescent City for dinner while staying in Klamath to enjoy Redwood National Park. After a quick dinner at the Hawaiian BBQ in Crescent City (just OK) we stopped to walk around the harbor and noticed the Battery Point lighthouse in the distance. We decided to drive to the lighthouse and stay for sunset. Great walk up to the... More

We stopped first thing in the morning when no one else was there. It was just so peaceful to see the crashing waves and pretty red lighthouse. It doesn't take long to see it and well worth the time.

Traveling from Seattle to San Francisco down Highways 101 and 1, we had mapped or several points of interest in this area including the lighthouses and coastline of central and southern Oregon and the redwood forests of northern California. However nine of our travel guides, etc extolled the virtues of Crescent City. In fact we had not even planned on... More

We stopped off in Crescent City on our way down the coast and took some time to stretch our legs along the water. We happened to arrive at high tide on a day that was fairly stormy and it was awesome to watch the large waves crash on the rocks just in front of the lighthouse. At the time, I... More

The tide was too high for us to actually make it to the lighthouse, but what a beautiful site from the shore. I'd love to go back sometime and actually be able to make it the the lighthouse itself.

We were lucky to meet the care taker of this property. They take turns staying here. He told us some history. Was nice to walk out and see the light house and see why they put it here. Lucky it was a clear morning, So we got some nice pictures. Nice short walk, and enjoy a piece of history
