The lighthouse wasn't much. Just a replica. There are several steps down to the beach. Some spaced far apart. But the beach was quiet and a great little break. Not much parking. No RV parking since it would block the view of the homes across the street. But we found a spot!

The lighthouse is not far from crescent city visitor center. It has rocky seashore. We did not get in but view it from distance. Many people was checking tide pools but we walked over 1/3 of levee during low tide which we enjoy big wave hitting rocks.

While we were unable to visit the lighthouse itself it is still worth taking a look if you have time in town. Interesting site

So scenic, often photographed spot. Right on the longest and best beach in Crescent City. An easy walk. They shoot off the fireworks here on July 4 and it is spectacular! Lots of places to sit on the beach and watch them. Very highly recommended for visitors, especially on the 4th.

If you enjoy the rocky seashore, tide pools filled with creatures, a gravely beach with smooth rocks and lots of flotsam and jetsam including weathered wood, you'll love the area at the base of the Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City, CA. The hike across the rocks and up to the lighthouse is relatively easy. Built in 1856 and automated... More

We were able to walk over during low tide, but it was early evening, and the lighthouse was closed. The views from there were fantastic.

More of the beauty of Crescent City. If you get there at low tide you can walk across to the lighthouse. We spent an hour just staring out at the ocean watching the waves. Northern California at its finest.

We could not get to the light house because the tide was too high. However, the views were worth it. We also got to see where there is a seal rescue "hospital".
