“Very nice view”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This lighthouse is not far off the roadway. The tide was in so I couldn't get too close for the photos. There is a parking lot close to the lighthouse.

“A Fun Time”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This was a wonderful side trip while visiting the Redwoods National and State Parks. Do check the schedule at the various park Redwoods as the opening times vary depending on the tides. The walk is not to difficult over some rocks and up an incline but one can judge this when arriving at the site as to one's ability. We arrived earlier than expected but but we were awarded by the lighthouse keeper's opening up a bit early due to the tide. They were wonderful, provided a great tour, and information. They also have a wonderful little giftshop and museum artifacts.

“Awesome Lighthouse and History!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This lighthouse tour (given by volunteers) was great! Lots of history from the building of it to today! It has even survived tsunamis! The lighthouse is separated by a strip of water so you have to go when the tide is low to cross this strip of land. It is a beautiful setting. You can see Crescent City and Harbor from this lighthouse and beaches along HWY 101 in the distance.

“Such an experience”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The walk out to the lighthouse was not an easy walk for those with difficulties walking, it was not handicap accessible. We would be interested in becoming lighthouse volunteers.
