“Amazing views, fun tide pools”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

A great natural area to visit. The tide pools are active, be sure to go only at low tide. check the tide charts and try to be there when the low tide is "negative".

“A sweet little piece from the past.”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

This lighthouse is right at the edge of town, so it it very easy to get to. It is fun to see the inside of the 'house' type of lighthouse and to be able to view the furniture that the original occupants may have had.

“The BLM park is worth visiting”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Beautiful views of the ocean, possible gray whale sightings, can go to the top of the lighthouse for a great view of the Oregon Coast, tide pools as well.

“Very classy old lighthouse!”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

It's too bad you have to pay to park! Otherwise, this park has a great view of the Pacific Ocean and the towering Newport Bridge!
