There are 2 lighthouses in Ilwaco. This is the easiest one to get to. (The other is a 3/4 mile hike). You must pay the Washington State park $10 a day parking fee / or $30 annual pass fee to access either. This is available at the Cape Dissapoint State Park ranger station at the entrance to the park. (just down a little from the lighthouse road.)
At the North Head lighthouse parking, it is an easy walk to the lighthouse and other trails are available to explore. In the summer season, you can pay to go inside the lighthouse.
The old lighhouse keepers homes are also available as vacation rentals. Spendy, but we stayed there once and enjoyed it.
